The Preatures - Is This How You Feel

Sounds Like: Fleetwood Mac, Jefferson Airplane, Buffalo Springfield, Haim

So, I have a confession to make. I have been sitting on this song for quite a while now (really just a week...which is like an eon in the blog world), and that is really because when it came to putting something down about the song I was having such a hard time describing it. It is not because the song is other worldly or mind-shatteringly original in its elements. Rather, the components are familiar, but elusive. I could relate to the feel of the core of the song, but I could not nail down a similar sound. This, and the fact that all that I could find on the internet in terms of related bands was Fleetwood Mac (total wild card), had me stumped, but in a good way. Check out the Sydney natives and their muted alt blues feel (Yes, that is the best I got for now) here and grab the single
