bat for lashes

last week, while checking out the excellent blog gorilla vs bear, i happened upon the bat for lashes video for ‘what’s a girl to do’. the video is real cool, so i decided to look into the band and some of their past work. from what i have heard of the album “fur and gold” it’s real cool as well. bat tunes have been on constant rotation through out the weekend at g.f.o.m head quarters.

bat for lashes is made up of natasha khan and touring members ginger lee, abi fry and lizzy carey. khan of pakistani decent currently resides in brighton, uk. her music is really interesting and varied. lush piano, murky and mysterious beats, and great harmonies all combine to make “fur and gold” an impressive listen. you can get more info on the band here and check out a few of their tunes here.

bat for lashes will not be making it to philadelphia in the near future but will however make a few tour stops in states.
