Preatures try not to think about their booming success

THE Preatures' bass player Thomas Champion tries not to think too much about the band's booming success.

It tends to psych him out, apparently.

"It's never a good idea to stop and think about what's going on and why it happened," the 24-year-old said.

"You'll just shock yourself, y'know.

"I just try to go with the flow, put off the inevitable thought process and dive straight into the mud."

The Preatures will join front-running music icons such as The Roots, Flight Facilities and The Cat Empire at the Falls Festival in Byron Bay from December 31 to January 3.

Champion said he was looking forward to catching Vampire Weekend and The Roots at Falls, between promoting the Preatures' newest work, the Is This How You Feel? EP.

"I'm super keen to head to Byron and get amongst it," Champion said.

"We're looking forward to showing of our new stuff.

"I think it has a really authentic sound, but it's hard to say where we went because at no point were we following a formula. It was all very organic."

Champion, joined by Isabella Manfredi and Gideon Bensen on vocals, Jack Moffitt on lead guitar and Luke Davison on drums, said he was looking forward to seeing a little more of the country he loves.

"We've been to LA and New York before, but I love seeing Australia," he said.

"Getting to travel across the countryside as part of my work is always amazing."
