Bat For Lashes – Laura

July 26, 2012

Bat For Lashes has always been a bit sonically unpredictable — on one album they’ll jump from a balladic barn-burner to a Bjork inspired art-rock piece to something that feels barely definable. New track, “Laura,” off the upcoming album, The Haunted Man, is disarmingly simple, unadorned and straight-forward. It’s the least performative piece of work Natasha Khan has produced to date, utterly honest and raw. The content of the video is certainly, well, strange, but played under Khan’s desperate bellows, it feels completely familiar and accessible. “Laura” is an exciting sign of things to come from Bat For Lashes, a true and elegant demonstration of just how wildly talented Natasha Khan really is.
