noakes writes "FLOOD SONGS/ JUNE SONGS is the debut album by Perth indie phantasms THE PREYTELLS. The album's feature songs "Lord Hold My Hand", "Shout" and "Sacramento" have been played on Triple J, FBI, Triple R and RTR.
Fourteen tracks that invade the body and electrify the mind, FLOOD SONGS/ JUNE SONGS is a blazing journey through the underworld of art-pop where each track differs from the last - one moment a golden pop song, a Californian sunset, the next a flood of shattering glass, blood curdling shrieks and doomsday drumming. The album showcases The Preytells' clear artistic vision and lands the band in the backyard of The Raveonettes and The Pixies, while smashing ELO into the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
The Preytells launch their debut album on the 26th of September in WA at the Rosemount Hotel, North Perth, and will be touring nationally in October 2009. Melbourne dates include:
1st Oct at Brunswick Hotel, Brunswick
2nd Oct at Revolver Upstairs, Prahran
Other tour dates to be announced soon.
The Preytells hit the scene in 2005 winning the National Campus Band Competition and since then have made appearances at major festivals (Southbound, St Jerome's Laneway Festival), supported the likes of Little Barrie (UK), Oh Mercy and End of Fashion and have released 3 EPs, COULD I CHANGE YOUR MIND (2007), SHOUT/I'M SO SORRY(2008) and SACRAMENTO (2008).
“… a rich cross-pollination of pop smarts and artistic bravery.” – Xpress Magazine, Perth.
“Every so often you hear a record and just know that you’re hearing the beginning of something really special.” – Drum Media Magazine, Sydney.
“The Preytells are definitely tight…dreamy pop melodies, mature guitar lines, and some good hooks too….It’s top shelf gangly pop!” – Vijay Khurana, Triple J
