The Good Natured are enjoying that magical time when public exposure is just bubbling under the surface. When it's cool to meet someone who has "heard of them" because they're teetering on the edge of a larger audience. When it's still exciting to promote them because chances are your friends haven't heard their music yet. So here I am, promoting them, & asking "damn, have you heard this shit?"
It seems that lead singer Sarah reached out to the legendary left-handed synthPOP artist Don Vince Clarke (of Depeche Mode brilliance, as well as Erasure & Yazoo). The two somehow hit it off & began their collaborative music-making on Skype, eventually creating an exclusive mix for BBC 6 Music as well as a quite excellent POP noir song called Ghost Train. Now, if you know a thing or two about Vince Clarke, you will know that this man doesn't go out & collaborate with just anyone. But it's easy to understand why he took a liking to Sarah right off the bat: the hairdos say it all.
Makes sense, right?
Ride the Ghost Train of love, below. And while you're at it, download it, because it's not bad at all now, is it?
Note to our readers: Keep your eyes on these guys. The Good Natured have all the snap-crackle-POP of Kate Nash with all the savory sexiness of Rihanna... with a much-coveted dash of alternative credibility. For more on The Good Natured, check out their website & follow them on twitter.
