Having laid some tantalising breadcrumbs for what to expect from her forthcoming album Lost Girls and the universe she has created surrounding it in the form of Kids In The Dark and the self-directed video, today Bat For Lashes aka Natasha Khan shares a second taster, Feel For You.
Kids in the Dark set the scene, a gauzy power ballad that stretches out like a shadow in the evening sun. Feel For You reveals a whole other side to the Lost Girls, revelling in the delights of pure, 80s hued pop, with scratches of funk guitar, strutting drum patterns, and a timeless sing-along chorus. It is an integral song on the album, with Khan taking us on supernatural night-riding adventure and this being our protagonists theme song…
Spanning 10 tracks, Lost Girls sees Khan dreaming up her own fully formed parallel universe, creating an off-kilter coming of age film in which gangs of marauding female bikers roam our streets and teenagers make out on car hoods. In this video we delve deeper into a nocturnal feminine world and touch on themes of love between characters from different universes. The women of Lost Girls are parallel to one of Khan’s previous female protagonists, the street tough, darkness-driven Pearl, from her 2009 lauded album Two Suns. Within the women of Lost Girls and the character Nikki Pink, Khan unfolds elements of herself; within these songs, we do the same. Lost Girls is an album full of romance, a homage to Los Angeles, to being a kid in the 80’s, to films that touched and changed her life. Much more will be unveiled in the coming weeks…
