Biography

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.

Bat For Lashes’ music is bold and vivid. Her live shows, with accomplices Ginger Lee, Abi Fry and Lizzy Carey, are made up of thunderous ... Read more in Amazon's Bat for Lashes Store

Editorial Reviews

With her dazzling 2009 sophomore album, Bat For Lashes is set to assume the mantle of the most dynamic and intriguing Pop performer in the UK. Natasha Khan's debut, Fur And Gold, was nominated for the 2007 Mercury Music Prize, and earned two Brit Award nominations for Best Breakthrough and Best Female in 2008. The album's blend of spooky childhood reveries and magical piano balladry caught the imagination of everyone and not just in the music world. Bat for Lashes was asked to support Radiohead on their European tour last summer at the band's personal request, where she assembled a new live band to explore fresh musical forms, before heading out to New York and the Californian desert to write what has now become Two Suns. 11 tracks including the single 'Daniel'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanté April 20, 2009
By D. Benz
Format:Audio CD
Seven stars! The music press is abuzz with Natasha Kahn as heir apparent to the genre inhabited by Kate Bush, Bjork and other not-so-easily-pigeon-holed femme fatales. To be sure, comparisons are in order, but only as points of reference. My first listen to this spell-binding collection reminded me of the first time I heard Kate Bush's "Hounds Of Love", a percussion driven, minimally orchestrated production that showcased a spectacular vocal instrument. Like Bush, Khan modulates her voice effortlessly from a whisper to a howl, all while achieving a stratospheric range, as in the opener "Glass." She also has an appreciation for "less is more" in her instrumental arrangements. On some, synths glisten above and rumble below primal drumming and beguiling multi-track vocal splashes. On others, a simple piano accompaniment is all that's needed. All of the songs share equal merit (a pleasant surprise, considering the abundance of first-four-song fizzles), and each is thoroughly engaging. Her lyrics abound in flights of fancy, allusions to knights in crystal armor and emerald cities. While they could easily sound pretentious and precious, as is the case with some of her contemporaries, she breathes them to life as they intertwine with and inhabit each song. In some she conjures deeply insightful moments. She laments in Sleep Alone, "lonely, lonely, lonely his mother told me/ the dream of love is a two hearted dream. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars To be made of glass April 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
It's like climbing a long velvet rope sewn with golden charms and jewels. That description sums up the experience of listening to Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan), even in her lesser songs. And fortunately "Two Suns" doesn't really have any lesser songs -- just a steady stream of painfully exquisite, crystalline pop that focus on the feeling of love that's gone.

"In the street's broadways I seek... him whom my soul loveth," she sings softly in the introductory song, before switching to a mix of tribal drums and wafting keyboard. .

After that, she spreads out into a string of love songs -- in fact, this entire album is pretty heavy on those. Most are bittersweet descriptions of an affair falling apart ("I drove past true love once, in a dream/Like a house that caught fire, it burned and flamed"), but there are some beautifully idealistic moments as well.

Along the way, Khan dabbles in some stompy synthy dance, a hymnlike freak-folk ballad backed by a choir, and the warmly off-kilter "Traveling Woman," and a finale that evokes old wooden stages, toy pianos and an old theatre being shut down ("No more spotlights/coming down from heaven... and already my voice is fading/goodbye, my dears/and into the big city...").

Fortunately she doesn't abandon her signature sound, which is that of an old fantasy story mutating into a beautiful, slightly wicked dream -- swirling pop, haunting piano ballads, the soaring and unnerving echoes of "Siren" and its synth-studded companion "Pearl's Song," ethereal melodies swathed in shimmering keyboard, and the exotic sweet danciness of "Two Planets." But the absolute peak of the whole thing has to be "Daniel," an catchily effervescent ode to a man with a "flame in his heart.

Format:Audio CD
The first knowledge that I have about this project with this gorgeous girl and her stunning voice was given to me by Mr Thom Yorke (Radiohead) who said that this girl had tons of talent and a wonderful album on her hands. Well, i decided to give it a shot and I bought "Two suns" this morning. My personal reaction? Couldn't be more pleased! Natasha Khan has a stunning voice and she makes music in what it seems to be without any doubt: a remarkable singer for a near future. Her voice makes me remember Dolores O'Riordan (Ex Cranberries) by moments but, not even Mrs. O'Riordan sounded so pure and beautiful as Natashe here.

The first track "Glass" is stunning whith some tunes that go beyond simple pop... no way! this girl pushes her boundaries of what she is able to do. Then "Sleep alone" and "Moon and Moon" are simply organic... total extasis while you listen to some acoustic guitar and some piano fading away and coming back with intelligent pop textures through both tracks. "Daniel" on the other hand would be the techno tune that Nataha decided to carry on in the record. "Pearl's dream" is just another beautiful song made to haunt us down through the valleys of happiness, sadness and joy as well.

It's seems that Bat for lashes is a project that tries to sound to a friendlier version of Bjork and eventhough it doesn't get that far, it's still a piece of art that anyone who really wants to discover awesome new singers or bands in the Indie scene should try. I only hope that Natasha Khan keeps on making this kind of music with passion and artistical integrity for many years to come and I really hope that she avoids being swallowed by the all mighty music industry that tries to make music nowadays more commercial and hence, really, really boring. If Thom Yorke told you how great your music was Natasha, you MUST be proud of yourself. Stunning, beautiful album!!!

why isn't bat for lashes more popular?
Probably because to the general population her music is pretty bizzare sounding. I think she is 1000 times more talented than Gaga or Allen, but what gets played on the radio are the songs that have the "popular" sound. If you played any of Natasha's stuff to someone who only listens... Read More
