!! OMG, new band alert: The Good Natured !!


English electro pop band The Good Natured answers our longstanding question “what would it sound like if Dolores O’Riordan did guest vocals for Ladytron?” and the effect is just what we would hope for.
Their latest song “Video Voyeur” is catchy and lead singer Sarah McIntosh is delightful to listen to. You can currently download the song for free on the band’s Facebook page.
The Good Natured will release their debut album next year, but for now you can grab their 7-track EP Skeleton on Amazon or iTunes.
The band is doing a short North American tour next month, but leaving out Canada for some reason. Click after the jump for tour dates and a new remix of “Video Voyeur” by Adrian Lux.
