If you asked us to pick one - just one - band we thought were going to go major places in 2014, we probably wouldn't hesitate to say the Preatures, the Sydney quintet whose debut single "Is This How You Feel?" - which narrowly missed our Top 10 of 2013 - is still on heavy rotation in our respective jukeboxes. Seriously, with every consecutive single these guys (and lady!) prove they're some of the smartest pop songwriters out there - take a listen to "Better Than It Ever Could Be" and try not to wail along every word with frontwoman Isabella Manfredi by the second chorus. Check it out - and remember, we'll see you at every single show these guys play at SXSW.
