Bat For Lashes is the work of British singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Natasha Khan. Born in 1979, yet combining influences that span decades, Natasha’s work dwells in the elemental, emerging in timeless forms.

Editorial Reviews

Bat For Lashes aka Natasha Khan s highly anticipated
third album, The Haunted Man. The first track from the new album
Laura was named BEST NEW TRACK by Pitchfork.
com will be followed by All Your Gold.
Natasha Khan, Bat for Lashes first captured hearts
back in 2006 with a set of distinctively haunting and
rich, darkly phantasmagoric songs ripe with magic
realism. Her sensual and gilt-decorated dream world
was opened up in two Mercury Music Prize nominated
albums, the atavistic, reverb-drenched Fur and Gold
(2006) and 2009 s more electronically poppy Two
Suns. The latter featured the irresistible Daniel
which won Ms Khan an Ivor Novello award for Best
Contemporary Song and was recorded in London
and across America.
Bat For Lashes toured with Coldplay in 2010,
collaborated with Beck to write a song for the Twilight
film, Eclipse, headlined two sold out shows at the Sydney
Opera House in June 2011 and covered Depeche
Mode s Strangelove for Gucci s Guilty campaign.

Customer Reviews

Two weeks of listening to it, and I am completely in love with this album.
Ailene Evangelista
I generally end up loving albums that come together as a whole, but it's hard to consider this an album I love and really connect with like I do her first two.
K. Slechta
I definitely recommend listening through this album a few times to really appreciate it though.

I must admit that this album, Bat For Lashes' third, took me by complete and utter surprise. While I'm normally drawn to more guitar-driven music, I am somewhat familiar with her past work, having enjoyed the occasional song featured on music blogs and such. But nothing could have prepared me for the lush soundscapes, exquisite vocals, and evocative, moving lyrics spread throughout 'The Haunted Man.' If you were to combine all of the best attributes from PJ Harvey, The Cocteau Twins, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Portishead, Kate Bush, and Cat Power, you might get a general idea of the musical artistry to be discovered on this album. It may seem somewhat sexist to do so, but it's hard not to compare Bat For Lashes' work here to those other groundbreaking, (mostly) female artists because, although Natasha Khan definitely carves her own path, she continues the tradition of uniquely talented women pushing the envelope, musically and lyrically, to create her own brand of genuine, introspective, blissful-yet-dramatic art-pop, much like the aforementioned artists.

A perfect example is "Lilies," which opens the album on an atmospheric, serene note, with angelic vocals over a swirling arrangement of synthesizers, strings, horns, and pounding bass that totally envelops the listener. When, at the end, she belts, "Thank God I'm alive," it's nearly overwhelming. And that's just the opener. The exhilarating, freeing sound of "All Your Gold" is actually quite heartbreaking lyrically--concerning a woman's "good man," who she can't commit to wholeheartedly due to her strong, lingering feelings for a past love--which creates some conflicting emotions within the listener, resulting in a unique and powerful listen.

Two weeks of listening to it, and I am completely in love with this album. While not as immediately captivating as Two Suns was, it takes a few listens to reveals it's beauty, but believe me when I say it'll get under your skin and it'll stay with you. Don't judge it on just one listen! It's more intimate then the last two records (which I cannot recommend enough, if you like The Haunted Man), but it also feels more mainstream to me, more accessible? Without losing that Bat For Lashes charm. Easily one of the best albums of 2012. Favorite tracks are Lilies, Marilyn, The Haunted Man and Laura.

I came across Bat For Lashes mostly in part to a tiny 3 x 3 ad in the back of an issue of the now defunct Paste Magazine. The ad was simple and small, but extremely noticeable amongst the sea of other artists on the pages past the reviews. It featured a picture of a beautiful woman adorned in gold peacock feathers, sitting in the corner of a boxing ring. There was something so bizarre and surreal about the image that unlocked something deep within me and made me search the web for her immediately. "Fur And Gold" was unlike anything I'd ever heard in my whole life and I fell in love almost immediately with Natasha's haunting voice. The songs painted images of animals in the wild and people dancing in a dark forest around campfire, dressed in feathers and furs. Two years later "Two Suns" came out. It retained the mystique that "Fur and Gold" had, but Natasha perfected her songwriting and kept the same space tribal sound. I couldn't stop listening to it and each track has gained over a hundred plays since it's release. Three more years have passed, and now we have Natasha's next endeavor, "The Haunted Man"

"The Haunted Man" features a much more matured, even a bit peppier version of the music we've heard on Natasha's last two albums. While it has lost much of the ethereal feeling that emanated from the heart of "Two Suns", it's still a fantastic set of music from Miss Khan. It's easy to hear how much she has grown as a musician over the nine years since "Fur and Gold". In a sense you can feel how she has changed over her years of touring and collaborations.

The Haunted Man is a strange, in a good way, album. It is just the right amount of off the wall sounds, beautiful singing, and unusual music.

I saw Bat For Lashes at Lollapalooza 2009. They struck me as a really strange group that I would probably like a lot. The rawness of the music was what attracted me. I listened to preview of their other albums and just didn't hear that same strangeness. Along came Haunted Man in 2012, and here it is, that same feeling from their live concert.

Bat For Lashes is difficult to describe. Electronica, no not really, but there is a bunch of that going on here and there. Bjork-like, well sort of in a way. Natasha Khan has a similar tone in her voice. Maybe I'm thinking of Bjork's Sugar Cube days. A little bit Belly, but not nearly the hard rock edge, but sort of. This is just strange cool music.

Normally I like to review each track, but in this case the album is just a wonderful strange journey from track one to eleven. Rare to put together a CD where the album is a whole and not just random songs thrown together. There is only one song that annoys me a little tiny bit, the one with the baby noises and the odd Alvin and Chipmunks sped up sound. Otherwise this is a genuinely excellent album from start to finish.

The cover art sets the tone for the album, different, a bit out there, a bit risqué, but yet completely covered all the same. I love the packaging for this CD. Everything is made of paper, the jacket is heavy card stock, and there is a nicely printed matte paper lyrics booklet - including some lovely line drawings.

A different album that I really like. Natasha Khan has a beautiful voice that mixes perfectly with the music.
