She Gives Me a Feeling :: Nat Jenkins and The Delmars

I decided I would hop on the "music I found on myspace" blogging train along with Meggo and Brenda. Unfortunately, if you want to listen to the song I'm blogging about, you'll have to actually go to myspace to listen to it. I know, it's a lot of work. If you go to Nat Jenkin's Myspace Profile you can listen to several of his songs, but in particular I'm blogging about the song "She Gives Me a Feeling," so if you are so inclined you should go listen to it.

Nat Jenkins and the Delmars are from Britain, and I don't even know if they have any recordings for sale anywhere. I've looked online but I have failed. As such, I also haven't found any lyrics online and I don't really have time to listen to the song over and over trying to figure out every lyrical nuance of the song right now.

I enjoy all of the songs they have on the myspace page, but "She Gives Me a Feeling" just got my attention. I think part of it is the backing singer/accordion player, Natalia Tena. You can gaze on her lovely visage in the image to the left. I'm gonna out myself here, and admit that I'm a bit of a Harry Potter nerd. The books were integral reading in my adolescence, and they are also one of the few things my sister and I still have in common aside from genetic material. Nonetheless, Natalia Tena happens to play the character Tonks in the movie "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." As you can imagine, when I found out that she not only acted, but could play the accordion, sing beautifully, and also play the guitar, I was impressed.

Aside from the excellent inclusion of Natalia Tena in the band, I enjoy the folk tune touches that the violin and accordion give their songs, without going overboard and ruining the overall indie rock vibe of the music. While I already gushed about Natalia, her harmonies are excellent additions, especially to "She Gives Me a Feeling."

Anyways. If you've got time and are interested, check out his myspace page and give it a listen.

the fact that she's in the harry potter movies alone makes her insanely cooler than most musicians...mad props!
