Backstage Pass With The Good Natured

The Good Natured1

by Raj Rudolph

EQ caught up with The Good Natured backstage at their last show at The Lexington in London to talk about their free download, "Video Voyeur", working with dance maestro Adrian Lux on "Alive", the freedom of being in a band directly after student life, how social media has developed them as a band and how far they have come from their early beginnings on the EQ Live stage.

It's been a pure pleasure to watch The Good Natured grow from strength-to-strength and personally, I can't wait for the band's debut album to drop in early April.  To score your FREE Download of "Video Voyeur" make sure you give the band a "like" on their Facebook page and you can also score another hot track of theirs called "Wolves" on their official website.

Their debut EP "Skeleton" is out for download right now on iTunes.  If you don't own it, well really you're well behind the eight ball now aren't you.  If you don't already own "Alive" by Adrian Lux featuring The Good Natured, well, let's just say I'm really ashamed of you.

EQ Backstage Pass With Darren Hayes


EQ attended the soundcheck of the Darren Hayes Secret Tour in London's Shepherds Bush Empire and captured some fun footage of "To The Moon And Back"!  We also caught up with the entire band afterwards to talk about what's like to perform some of these iconic pop songs as well as how difficult it is to not get too emotional on stage when it comes to delivering "Secret Codes And Battleships" live.

It was really nice to catch up with Darren, Shave, Steve and the new band members on this new Darren Hayes tour and thanks to everyone on Team Darren (Cathy, Tracey & Maggz) for allowing us to come and film these exclusive little bits and bobs for you. 

If you missed our EQ review of The Secret Tour make sure to catch up on that right here and if you haven't yet downloaded "Secret Codes And Battleships", well you should be punished really.

EQ Backstage Pass: Queen Of Hearts @ "The Arrival" EP Launch


We caught up with incredible new artist Queen Of Hearts at her EP Launch for "The Arrival" on Wednesday to talk about what inspires her amazing sense of fashion, working virtually with Monarchy, Stuart Price and The Sound Of Arrows, what listeners should expect when listening to the EP and her amazing new track "Neon".

Queen Of Hearts is one of the most exciting new female electronic pop acts to emerge this year and I highly urge you to check out one of her London shows and download "The Arrival" EP once it hits digital outlets.  The song in our Backstage Pass mini-feature is the sexy "Where Are You Now" - a track so luxiourious that you can't help but get lost in it's beauty - and thank goddess, this song is definitely going to be on the EP.  You'll love it, I play it constantly.
