The Good Natured Cover Sufjan Stevens: Get It Here!
aaamusic | On 10, Nov 2010
Be My Animal is the new single by The Good Natured and is set to be released on November 15th 2010. The single contains B-Side Prisoner. The single is set to release on indie label Kids (The Whip, Kyte).
The Good Natured’s, aka Sarah McIntosh, dark new single bristles with raw teenage sexuality. This 19-year-old is certainly growing up with these truthful and brave songs about the rougher parts of intimacy. The song zigzags across the boundaries of sexual and emotional love as Sarah plaintively calls out for her lover to become her animal and hunt her down. This electronic love song exhibits her already trademark hypnotic beat combined with alluringly assured vocals and an almost shocking masochism.
In the B side, Prisoner, Sarah isn’t afraid to take up where Pedro Almodovar left off in his sexy and challenging films, ‘Tie me up, tie me down’ she sings in an effort to confront why some lovers have both emotional and physical power over us. The single Prisoner re-examines female emancipation and Stockholm syndrome for a new generation: ‘I can’t really explain my bewildered heart’ cries Sarah’s lyrical and impressive voice.
This is the second official single after the release of Your Body is Machine which was released on Kitsune earlier this year. The single and the video for the song has already received over 100,000 hits on YouTube, along with previous releases of DIY EPs have all helped to garner her great attention. The Good Natured’s realistic love songs have been praised by the likes of The Sunday Times, NME and Q magazine and championed by the likes of BBC Radio 1, Radio 6 and XFM.
Be My Animal was written and produced by McIntosh/ John Fortis (Razorlight). B-side Prisoner was written and produced by McIntosh/ Liam Howe (Marina and the Diamonds, CocknBull Kid). Both tracks have been mixed by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters/ Muse). Be My Animal is set for release on November 15th through KIDS.
