Bat for Lashes

Bat for Lashes

Bat for Lashes (AKA Natasha Khan), an experimental British singer whose rare sound and presentation has been compared to other progressive risk-takers like Bjork, Radiohead, PJ Harvey and Tori Amos. Her newest album Two Suns deals with distortion in reality and blurring of contrasting life themes. Khan herself describes it as an album “examining the need for both chaos and balance” and on it, she even assumes another alter ego called Pearl. To hear Bat For Lashes at her weirdest and most experimental, download the track “Wilderness” which features huge gobs of white noise and thick slabs of distorted, reverb locals. This track is not for the faint of heart, but there are other songs on it like “Daniel” that are more melodic and soothing to the soul.
