Last Friday at The Gov was a celebration of indie-rock tunes, with Melbourne/Brissy dudes, HOLY HOLY rocking the stage, before Sydney-slickers The Preatures, made us feel is this how you feel (good).
Warming up the crowd with their hypnotising set, HOLY HOLY were seriously, holy moley. They had the crowd rocking along to their banging tunes, with crowd favourite House of Cards bringing the absolute house down (pun intended). With mesmerising lyrics and melodies, singer Tim Carroll brought some serious goods, no really, that voice was out of control. With a set that rocked as much as HOLY HOLY's, one must ask the question... Why aren't these guys playing arenas already?
Next up, The Preatures fronted by bad-ass rock chick Isabella Manfredi, took the stage. The crowd roared. Promoting their debut album, Blue Planet Eyes, The Preatures delivered a bunch of new tracks from the album, along with a few favourite hits, Somebody's Talking and Is This How You Feel. Showcasing their indie-rock vibe the best way they know how, the crowd were mesmerised by Manfredi's melodies and the bands musical greatness. As the set progressed, the band got rowdy, the crowd became dowdy, and it was getting all sorts of loudy. With yet another amazing singer filling up the venue with her sweet, sweet, vocal pipes, it was easy to look past the few technical issues that were encountered. Technology these days, ey.
Overall, the night was a wonderful one and we left feeling preaturey good.
Tip: If you get the chance to see either of these bands play, you need to go.
