I was actually super fond of UK electronic pop act The Good Natured. I had loads of fun catching them live back in early 2012, when they played Popscene, alongside Katy B. The Good Natured had so many catchy, upbeat, spunky tunes, and they were spectacular live. Sarah McIntosh always reminded me some of La Roux, circa 2009, with her British accent, edgy style, and sassy music. Well, I keep saying things in the past tense, because, The Good Natured are no more. Don’t worry, they’re not gone, but they’re under a new moniker now. Ladies and gents, say hello to Lovestarrs. And get dancing to their new single Bullet, a fantastic song that reminds me exactly what I loved The Good Natured, and will continue following the music put forth by Lovestarrs. Bullet is off Lovestarrs’ forthcoming Supernova EP, out August 5 on LABS Records.

OFFICIAL VID: The Good Natured – Lovers

April 11, 2013

Brit synthpop band The Good Natured, fronted by the adorable Sarah McIntosh, is FINALLY dropping their debut album Prism this summer. I’ve been waiting a long time for that. I caught The Good Natured live in early 2012 and they were great and energetic. Sarah even jumped off the stage to sing and dance with the audience. Here’s a new single and video off Prism. Lovers sounds like some of stuff off their EPs and appeals to me immediately. It’s super catchy and as always, I love Sarah’s accents. She always reminds me some of La Roux mixed with some other appealing pop artists.

OFFICIAL VID: The Good Natured – 5-HT

December 11, 2012

And it’s out! The video for The Good Natured’s lead single 5-HT dropped yesterday into the machine. It’s the first preview off their coming 2013 debut album, which I’ve been sorely waiting for. I caught the UK electropop band live back in January of this year and they have quite the energy live. They’ve always somewhat reminded me of La Roux mixed with many other synthpop acts’ sounds and a dash of their own style and flavor. I’ve always been very fond of Sarah McIntosh’ vocals and the obvious British accent. I really look forward to hearing the full length. 5-HT is good, but I’m still most fond of some of their previous tracks, like Skeleton, You’re Body is A Machine, Video Voyeur, Wolves, etc. Those songs were particularly memorable and catchy.

It feels like it’s been forever, but The Good Natured are finally wrapping up their debut album to be released in summer of 2013. The UK indie electropop band has very La Roux like vocals mixed with other upbeat synthpop sounds. They’re energetic and mesmerizing live. The first preview off their coming debut album is single 5-HT, a lush, grand pop track. It’s a grower. I seriously cannot wait for the debut album. I’ve been waiting a long time. There’s still a long way to go, but summer will be upon us again before we know it!

The Good Natured’s Ghost Train

July 12, 2012

Today, The Good Natured released their collaboration with Vince Clarke (of Erasure, Depeche Mode, etc). It’s an 80’s like electropop tune and I can definitely hear that Erasure/Depeche Mode sound lying in there somewhere. It sounds far more synthy than The Good Natured’s other tunes and showcases Sarah’s La Roux-like awesome voice a lot less. I’ve been on The Good Natured’s HUMAN train for awhile now and caught them live in a small venue not too long ago. It’s incredible how long artists work hard at getting some limelight, so I’m pretty sure The Good Natured will, with time, become far bigger than they are now. You just wait and see. I’ll tack on a few other The Good Natured tunes at the bottom of this since I haven’t mentioned them on here for awhile and some of you need to listen to their other songs.

Raindrops is a beautiful track from The Good Natured. It’s a soaring, glorious, touching track. Sometimes, Sarah McIntosh’s voice seems similar to Skylar Grey’s or maybe even Sinead O’Connor’s. I love their voices. The song is a far cry from the UK electropop band’s usual upbeat indie dance trax, but it’s a gorgeous changeup. There seems to be a chamber-like or Irish influenced quality to this song. It’s a perfect, sappy few minutes for today.
