May 24, 2009

Koolmuzone launched Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) earlier on 23rd Feb 09. We are glad to see her featured in today’s edition of Dawn Images

Though Two Suns at times flirts playfully with more accessible melodies and structures (Travelling Woman), after multiple listens it’s obvious that it’s a consciously chosen direction rather than one arrived at after consideration of other things, namely commercialism.

Natasha Khan aka Bat for Lashes’ second album was released early last month

Hailing from Brighton, England, Natasha Khan (who records under the moniker Bat For Lashes — a vehicle primarily hers despite contributions from various musicians) seems like she’s longing for a world filled with fairies and pixies, a world of mystery and outrageous colours where varying personalities are taken and shelved with the blink of an eye.
