Bat For Lashes

bfl

There are a myriad of ways to win your way into my heart. Little did I know that posing nude on the beach with a portrait of Daniel Larusso painted onto your back was one of them. Not that Natasha Khan wasn't already there, but this cements her place in my heart forever. A-maz-ing. "Daniel" is the single from Bat For Lashes' new album Two Suns (you can hear it here). She'd already established herself as a bit of an eccentric and now she's taken it a bit further pitting herself against a blonde alter-ego, Pearl, on the new album. And not to digress but do we think she really wrote a song for Danny Larusso? Really?

I'm was a little mad at myself because at some point I found a fantastic editorial from a magazine online featuring Natasha and thought I bookmarked it. Apparently I didn't and now I can't find it again for the life of me. I was saving it (or thought I was) so I could do a blog when the new album comes out. But I have to admit that this might be even better.

I LOVE her! I'm shooting/reviewing her show here at the end of next month, so I should end up getting to meet her.

Those photos are gorgeous!

I love that new song. I hope the new album is similar to this single. I like the first album ok but not as much as I like their cover of "I'm on fire"(Springsteen song)

I would love to see her live.

Yeap! Natasha is the best! Am still very attached to her 1st album. The new is great though. And yeah, there was a nice editorial in Dazed and Confused!

Is this possibly the feature you were looking for? If not, it's still a great article talking about her new album, with some killer photos!

Love the blog, by the way!
