The Good Natured - "Blue Monday"
Though they have since broken up, the music of this band remains timely and timeless. Good Natured is about right: she sounds like what she is, a nice Home Counties girl, and although her voice keeps drifting towards mockney, you can hear the posh, plummy tones beneath. She's a techno Dido, a Lily Allen who's given in to depression, or a Kate Nash who wants to prove herself with serious clubbers. She gives me sounds of a British Inara George, with all the same prismatic color in her voice. Consisting of Sarah McIntosh on vocals and keyboards, and formerly her brother Hamish McIntosh on bass and George Hinton (with whom Sarah became acquainted at university) on drums. They've disbanded (and she's rebranded as Sazzie), but theu are each shining brightly. Get into this brit pop bop!
So today, with colors on the carpet, I choose The Good Natured's cover of Orgy's "Blue Monday" as my, let it out, let it drain like a lanced wound, let go of everything that no longer serves you, song for a, release the ties that bind, stand on your own convictions, how does it feel, Monday.
