Natasha Khan (born 25 October 1979), better known by her stage name Bat for Lashes, is an English indie/alternative singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She has released four studio albums, the latest of which is “The Bride” (out on July 1st). Critics have likened Khan’s music to the work of Siouxsie Sioux, Björk, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Annie Lennox and Tori Amos.
“The Bride” is a concept album that follows the story of a woman, whose fiancé dies in a car crash on the way to their wedding. The album follows her as she decides to go on the honeymoon alone and portrays her emotions as she deals with the tragedy.
“Sunday Love” is the second single from the album and the video is directed by Khan herself and director John DeMenil.
To promote the album, Bat for Lashes embarked on a small tour which consisted of performing in a number of churches to match the wedding theme where fans and attendees were asked to be dressed in formal attire. The album’s artwork was made in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and was shot over the course of a year. The CD and vinyl feature a booklet and prints of the photos from this collaboration.
