“Here Comes the Water” by LSA (compared to the Preatures)

     Even for us, it’s easier to make the argument that we’re clueless than it is to argue that the most recent release by LSA should remind listeners of The Preatures’ song “Is This How You Feel?” The argument that Indie Obsessive is clueless would include the following factors:
     1. The members of LSA are four males, while the vocals of The Preatures are female driven.
     2. LSA is Rock with a twist of Pop, while The Preatures are Rock with a firm squeeze of Punk.
     3. The local influences of the two bands are very different, since LSA is based in the UK (London), while The Preatures are from Australia (Sydney).

     Still, we’re sticking with the position that the songs are similar. The focus should be on the beat of LSA’s “Here Comes the Water,” as compared to the beat of The Preatures' "Is This How You Feel?” LSA primarily relies on the bass to establish the beat, while The Preatures use a combination of bass and drum.
Bottom line – In doing the comparison, even if you land on the side of Indie Obsessive dearly needing a clue, you will have come to that conclusion while listening to two strong songs. 

“Here Comes the Water” includes some interesting lyrics as well:
“Life is a series of things I know I need to do.
That’s life.
A series of things that I strive to learn.”

     LSA is short for “Love Stays Alive.” The members are Will White, Sam Jackson, Jonah Klein and George Wigens.

     The Preatures have a tour schedule that includes a stop in San Francisco. They will visit The Independent on October 29, 2014. After seeing the band earlier this year, we can almost guarantee that it will be a good show. The Preatures put on a high energy performance with more than their fair share of charisma.
