Two bits of good news: firstly, The Good Natured have signed with Parlophone imprint Regal, and secondly, a new EP is on its way. You may remember that we recently featured Sarah McIntosh electro pop troupe in our 11 tips for 2011. There's a decent chance that this is one tip that might come good.
To me, they've already come good, of course - singles like 'Your Body Is A Machine' and 'Be My Animal' have blown me away along with Sarah's absorbing covers. 'Wolves' sees Patrik Berger come on board for knob twiddling duties, following his work with Robyn, and possibly his footballing career. Maybe not.
The track has a bit of a Euro-pop feel, making it a sparkling anthem, although I have preferred the darker tones of the recent material from The Good Natured. Lyrically, I felt it retained more of that darker intent but apparently 'Wolves' is about escaping from mundane daily routines and not about succumbing to inner demons as I'd thought. Or maybe there's duality of meaning there. That'd be clever.
Oh and I guess this is the FG celebratory International Women's Day/Pancake Day post. Fun for all the family.
