Bat For Lashes

Natasha Khan first made her stamp on the music world back in 2006 with a set of distinctively haunting and rich, darkly fantastical songs ripe with magic realism. Her sensual and gilt-decorated dream world was opened up in two Mercury Music Prize nominated albums, the atavistic, reverb-drenched Fur and Gold (2006) and 2009’s more electronically poppy Two Suns. The latter featured the irresistible Daniel – which won Ms Khan an Ivor Novello award for Best Contemporary Song – and was recorded in London and across America. This was followed by a triumphant return in 2012 with the highly acclaimed third album The Haunted Man. A richly layered and accomplished record, it pulled Khan’s distinctive creative vision into sharper focus, confirming her as a true innovator and an established UK artist. Khan has since been nominated for ‘Best Female’ at the Brit Awards and the beautiful track ‘Laura’, one of the 2012’s best, was nominated for another Ivor Novello for ‘Best Song Musically And Lyrically’.
