Biography

Berkshire, United Kingdom

The Good Natured are an trio from Berkshire, United Kingdom. The band consists of singer-songwriter Sarah McIntosh, her brother Hamish McIntosh on bass and George Hinton on drums. In January 2014, they changed the band’s name to Lovestarrs.

The Good Natured, recently signed to Regal/Parlophone Records, offer a catchy gothic twist on with their new EP titled Skeleton, released on 20 June 2011. In the songs featured on the Skeleton EP, Sarah displays her compellingly mature command of the nuances of serious pop music, combined with the darker, and often more sensual, emotional and lyrical content of the gothic. Both “Skeleton” and “Wolves” are produced by Patrik Berger, known for his work with Robyn.

The title track “Skeleton” has an energetic blend of raw passion, and a murky, driving rhythm section. The track describes being stripped of emotional and physical coverings, leaving you with nothing to hide; metaphorically stripped down to two skeletons standing alone.

“Wolves” is a fast-paced, intimate track which sees Sarah in the deep dark wood, “dancing ’round fires, lost in desire” and ready to surrender to the howling of the wolves. The clarity of the interplay between the instruments is a stark contrast to the cheerfully morbid metaphor for escapism – feral and sensual.

The band have already been making a name for themselves with their previous EPs; Be My Animal, Your Body Is A Machine and their cover of Sufjan Stevens’s “For the Widows in Paradise”, retitled “For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti”.
