SXSW Preview: The Good Natured
Pictured above is Sarah McIntosh from The Good Natured. I know what you are thinking....looks uber hipster. True. However, I can forgive looks if the music is good. And to my surprise it is.
The other surprise was that this U.K. based indie star in the making is not old enough to legally buy beer here in the U.S. I got wind of the band as I was looking through the countless number of bands coming to South by Southwest. If The Good Natured don't make it big after SXSW, I'd be shocked.
Watch the video for their single "Be My Animal" below and check out their SXSW schedule.
