Bat For Lashes

Brighton, England's Bat for Lashes is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Natasha Khan. The Pakistan-born Khan pulls from her art school education and her experience producing multimedia installations when it comes to writing songs. She also cites Steve Reich and Susan Hiller as influences, while echoes of Björk and Siouxsie Sioux are heard throughout Bat for Lashes' mystical indie rock sound. Bat for Lashes' first single, "The Wizard," was digitally released by DiS, and issued as a 7" on Khan's own She Bear imprint in early 2006. That fall, with "Trophy" burning up the BBC indie rock chart, the Fur & Gold LP arrived in the U.K. in September. The album was released a year later in the U.S. to much critical acclaim. Bat for Lashes' ambitious 2009 album, Two Suns, revolved around the concept of Khan and her blonde, hedonistic alter ego Pearl, and featured a duet with Scott Walker. Khan's third album, 2012's The Haunted Man, raised eyebrows with its cover image depicting her in the nude, but songs such as the single "Laura" were more subtle and subdued than Bat for Lashes' previous efforts. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

We're in a real lull of activity for BFL lately and I'm totally up to my ears in other acts and genres right now. Natasha has that connection to the art world. You never know, she might go off music and do an art installation . It would be a shame, but I suspect that she's in a transition of some kind at least.
Sleep Alone. Having two hearts does help. I must admit that. I'm not lacking in love though. So, you don't really need two hearts in order to just love you know? But, we're human and humans always have the desire to have the other heart, the mirror to their own heart, to be able to take the life's journey with them. Well, I'm still breathing, and I'm still human, so therefore I still have hope. I love this song. It's beautiful

She looks hot, but this song sucks!
It's Natasha Khan's 34th birthday today, 25th October. Happy birthday Natasha!

BFL is my newest favorite; such a great sound.
I have looked at a lot of likes figures for various kinds of acts on Pandora and I can't believe that BFL has so few likes. It is a mystery to me. Even quirky Björky has 2400. I know it took Björk 20 years of major-label solo work to build up that much appreciation but beautifully talented people aren't getting the attention they deserve....
@jtcpginc4 it's been 3 months since I saw that and I can't think of anyone. Well, I tried.
Love her voice.
I found out about her by her duet with Beck, on the song "Let's Get Lost", off of the "Twilight: Eclipse" soundtrack. ❤ Awesome song; awesome music.
zlgruskin, I am very, very envious.

Haha i cant believe it when this song came up and my mom told me that bat for lashes is a family friend. So not kidding.
I have to go and do things but I can't stop listening to this station! I can't put my headphones down. Damn you. (As I sit here)
If you could compare her to any other artist it could only be the great ............ .
She is my favorite artist and I can't wait for the new CD in October!!! So excited!
She's London born to a Pakistani father and an English mother- not the same thing as Pakistan-bor n . Very different, in fact.
I am getting to know her sound thanks to her being on a movie soundtrack.
Great music. But once again I wonder who does the bio who is always out of synch. In the bio you compare her style to Bjork and Siouxsie and then never mention those in similar artist. Get it together, makes me think you don't know your music.
Reminds me of some of Faun Fables' work
i totally agree that florence and the machine and bat for lashs are new life adore them both so much one tumbs up is not enough maybe 10 would work
my fav artist
Ya, totally awesome :D I got Tori tooooo but Bat is a close 3rd... :)
Love love love Bat for Lashes. I have Tori Amos, Kate Bush, and Bjork musical roots so it isn't strange that I instantly fell in love with her music. I do not think that anyone is creating magical music this good right now, except for the incredible Florence and the Machine. A different sound from Bat for Lashes but equally as amazing. Bat for Lashes and Florence and the Machine have breathed new life into the music scene. Thank God!! I hope to be lucky enough to see Bat for Lashes in concert

Like the song. Interesting lyrics.
I want to go to a concert SO bad! but she hasn't been in town EVER =( I love her with a passion though! =)
I think A Fine Frenzy should be added to similar artists.... She sounds just like Alison
Loved her since I heard her back in 2006. Seen her twice now. Natasha is just lovely. Huge fan.
amadeus_anto n i n
:) this is good. and i like the fact they are ineternation a l l y recognized.
seeing her in seattle this month very excited.. i think you should replace cat power w/ imogen heap or bjork dont think many of her records remind me of cat power.. just a thought
I think you should add Tori Amos to the 'Similar Artist' bar.
Their live show is incredible; go see them if you can. Yes, there's the amazing voice, the unique instrumentat i o n , the friendly rapport among the musicians, the gorgeous songs-- but you absolutely have to see Natasha Khan's stage presence for yourself.
gonna see her in Paris this month
She has a nice voice, very nice indeed. I swear i've heard her voice somewhere else before 2006, though. I can't really remember where though.
