    Newly re-launched as Lovestarrs, Sarah McIntosh (vocals) and her brother Hamish (bass and synths) are back to tease us with a taste of their debut album in the form of lead single ‘Get Your Sexy On’, due for release on 3rd June. The slick electronic outfit, formerly known as The Good Natured whilst signed to Parlophone/EMI, return with their unique brand of unashamed electro-pop thanks to a little help from their fans via a successful Kickstarter campaign, which has funded forthcoming LP ‘Planet Lovestarr’ - set to drop in August 2016. Now signed to new independent label DEFDISCO, who can already boast the likes of Public Enemy amongst their roster, the sibling pair are stepping up their game with ‘Get Your Sexy On’, an encouraging ode to lovers intertwined in a rapturous and motivating melody. In the band’s own words, the track is “about plucking up the courage to make your first move on someone”: aptly demonstrated in the equally motivating accompanying video. Set in an era that echoes 90s bubblegum pop in the most delightful way, the plot sees the duo playing cupid to three awkward couples and culminates in Sarah finding her own romance during a house party. B-side ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’ supports the track in an equally lighthearted manner, slowly revealing a straight woman’s interest in another girl through an anthemically indie ‘Stacey’s Mom’ vibe. Sarah, fascinated after a friend shared a recent encounter with her, was inspired to write a song about “how cool it can be when unexpected things happen.” No strangers to the unexpected, in a former incarnation the band had a string of European hits and were praised by the likes of The Guardian, NME, Clash and The 405, but received a crushing blow when their album was shelved prior to its already confirmed release with Parlophone/EMI. Now, with the backing of artist-empowering label DEFDISCO, Sarah and Hamish are back with a vengeance - and nothing will stop them this time. Support from - Sacre Noir Sacre Noir are a Scottish based three piece, centred around vocalist / producer Carrie Beattie. Initially conceived as a solo project, Sacre Noir released a trilogy of EPs before bringing in the talents of Phil Lock on guitar and Alexis Beattie on electronic drums to perform live and record the debut LP 'Her Volatile Condition.' In 2011 Sacre Noir took to the road to tour their first album, performing debut shows in Berlin, Paris, London and Liverpool. Highlights included gigs at the Paris Plages festival and at the infamous Vibe Bar on London's Brick Lane. "Undoubtedly, this artist has made this record from their own heart..." Sacre Noir kicked off their 2012 summer tour with concerts in Glasgow and Edinburgh with American electronic duo Hyperbubble. These shows also marked the launch of the 2nd album - 'Sinking Into Darkness', which included Sacre Noir's debut single / video release 'She Can't Take It'. During the 2012 summer tour Sacre Noir appeared at La Rotonde Stalingrad (Paris) and Madame Claude's (Berlin) among other venues. "moody blues that sounds like it's been filtered through transistors, capacitors and other gadgetry" 2013 saw Sacre Noir embark on their third summer tour, including shows at The Dublin Castle and Power's Bar in London, Le Vieux Leon in Paris and Little Stage in Berlin. During this tour Sacre Noir appeared with some great acts including George Frakes, The Ocean's Above, Dressmaker, the Mickey 9s and The Penny Black Remedy. As a vocalist Carrie has also collaborated under the Sacre Noir moniker with various notable producers - recent features have included work with various hip-hop artists currently working in Scotland including MOG and UVBeatz (both Powercut Productions), Conscious Route (True Hold Records) and MC duo Werd & Deeko (Sons of Scotland). AND BooHooHoo Heat your oven to 237 degrees, place some synthesisers between sheets of cling film and bake for 2 years. Remove from the oven and bash with a drum stick really HARD. Garnish with 3 part harmonies and let it cool by an open window. There you have it - BooHooHoo, an electronic pop band from Glasgow. Simple. Rustic. Done. (May contain nuts).
