    Premiere: The Preatures' "Somebody's Talkin'" Video Is A Force Of Nature

    Their excellent debut album is in stores next Tuesday. Thumbnail image by Liberty Cramer.

    This is The Preatures, a five-piece rock band from Sydney, Australia whose soulful, toe-tapping songs are pretty much impossible not to dance to.

    After releasing the great, Fleetwood Mac-worthy single "Is This How You Feel?" last year (above), the band will release its first full-length album Blue Planet Eyes on Sept. 30.

    For the video for new single "Somebody's Talkin'," premiering exclusively on BuzzFeed, the band recruited two female surf pros to ride crystal blue waves on the beaches of northern Sydney.

    "It was shot during one of the wildest weeks of weather ever," says frontwoman Isabella Manfredi by email. "I wanted the song to sound like Jackson Browne covering Jackson 5 (‘Doctor My Eyes’!), but for the video, the director Gemma Lee and I wanted something a bit darker and dangerous."

    Meanwhile, they did their own shredding on dry land.
