CMU Approved

Approved: The Good Natured

By | Published on Tuesday 5 October 2010

Still in her teens, Sarah McIntosh created her first EP under the name The Good Natured last year, composed after rescuing her grandmother’s old 1980s Yamaha keyboard from a life of collecting dust. The four track, self-released ‘Warriors’ EP pricked up all manner of ears across radio and the press, as well as at tastemaker label Kitsuné, which released the follow-up, ‘Your Body Is A Machine’, earlier this year.

For her third release, McIntosh has moved to another reliably on it label, KIDS Records, through which she will release new single ‘Be My Animal’ on 1 Nov. It’s just under three minutes of upbeat, mildly twisted pop, nodding back to the 80s without jumping headlong into the warm comfort of simple pastiche.
