Indietracks interview #23: The Good Natured

Less than two weeks to go now and we’ve been keenly examining the final list of stage times on the Indietracks website – we’ve got farm visits and stationwear shop perusing to schedule! Today we catch up with Sarah from The Good Natured for a brief chat. Although the band is mainly made up of Sarah, she is also joined by friend Hamish for live perfomances. Combining warm, electro-acoustic disco beats with tales of love, loss and spaceships, the band featured on a Huw Stephens Introducing podcast in January. Apparently they are a band who “love to dance” – we’re sure they won’t be the only ones having a little shimmy in the loco shed this year!

Hello The Good Natured – nice to meet you! Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?

Hi, my name is Sarah, I am 17 years of age and I like to make up little songs on my grandmother’s old keyboard

Do you/any band members have any particular skills, hobbies or claims to fame you wish to share?

I saw Alan Titchmarsh on a ferry once!

What’s going to be on your compilation tapes as you travel down to Indietracks?

The Cure’s greatest hits, Gang of Four, Strange Idols, Love is All, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Napoleon IIIrd

Thanks for popping in to say hello Sarah! We’ll look forward to seeing your grandmother’s keyboard on display at the festival!
