Bat For Lashes (Natasha Khan) delivers the strongest release of her career yet. Crafted as a concept album telling a story of a bride to be who loses her fiancée in a car accident on the the way to the wedding. The bride decides to go on the honeymoon alone, and listeners here the trauma and emotions she experiences throughout. The product of this is a dark, haughty, work of beauty.
Khan takes her listeners to another place, and though the story may be something only a few can relate to, the concept of Joe (the groom) representing the concept of love, and it’s connection with death. The songs whirl these heavy emotional with whimsical and at times chilling vocals. An auditory dreamscape of piano, guitar that many of her contemporaries emulate, but a sound and feeling that is exclusively Khan’s. www.batforlashes.com
