new bat for lashes – “glass”

batforlashes

Natasha Khan, aka Bat For Lashes, opens her upcoming album Two Suns with this fashionably dark piece. It slowly builds, starting with just her echoing voice then culminating with off-beat tribal drumming, background strings, and Miss Khan belting it all out. It is quite superb. Scott Walker (!) and Yeasayer will guest on the album. Two Suns is out April 6th on Astralwerks.
