Shona Foster – Bad Intentions
This track initally caught my ear because the progression sounds very similar, in my head, to the Soft Cell 80s new wave classic, Tainted Love.
I keep playing it again because Shona Foster’s quavering spectre of a voice, sometimes burlesque, sometimes folk, and this track especially, could soundtrack a remake of The Addams Family, or one of my personal 80s favourites, Beetlejuice.
There’s a lot of her music available in full on Last.fm at the moment or you can stream her 2011 release, The Moon & You (Beach Hut), on Spotify. Coincidentally, she’s playing The London Olympics Bandstand tomorrow, 31 July but her sound is one that would be perfect for London’s historic Wilton’s Music Hall.
