The Good Natured release 'Your Body is a Machine' + tour dates

Having salvaged her grandmother's 1980s Yamaha keyboard, Home Counties girl Sarah McIntosh - aka The Good Natured - self-produced her debut EP, 'Warriors' (2009). A year later, McIntosh sat her A-levels and split up with her boyfriend.

With these changes she found a whole new inspiration to write, the fruits of which, 'Your Body Is A Machine', will be released on 5 July, 2010.

The Good Natured on

'Your Body Is A Machine' is a driving, dark and subtly dramatic left-field pop song: musically atmospheric - inspired by the likes of Japan and David Sylvian - and lyrically intense ("We are influenced by our self love and benevolence"). And then there is her voice: a strange, steely thing, simultaneously emotionally involving and quietly repressed, calling to mind the clipped tones of Ladytron and Neil Tennant in equal measure. Throughout, McIntosh displays a maturity beyond her teenage years. She may be called The Good Natured, but you wouldn't want to cross her.

'Your Body Is A Machine' was written by McIntosh and produced by Dan Foat and Nathan Boddy (Delphic, I Blame Coco).

The single feature remixes by Zebra & Snake, Body Language, Aspirins for My Children, Radioproof and Baby Monster. The Zebra & Snake remix is featured on the Kitsune Maison compilation released 26 April, having picked up radio support from Huw Stephens, Nick Grimshaw, Steve Lamacq and Kissy Sell Out.

The Good Natured will be play a host of shows in the build up to the single and into the summer, with more lined up in advance of further releases.
