Bat For Lashes

March 13, 2013 - Bat For Lashes joins host David Dye in the studio. Since her 2006 debut Fur and Gold, Natasha Khan has garnered praise for her work as Bat For Lashes. At home in England, the Pakistan-born singer was nominated for a Mercury Prize twice, and her albums have been equally well received by American audiences and critics.
She recently returned with her third disc The Haunted Man, which drew attention for both its sound and cover art. Bat For Lashes discusses the cover that has drawn so much attention for its naked, but not sexualized, picture of her. And Beach House. Instrumentalist Alex Scally discusses how he and singer Victoria Legrand stuck to their singular artistic vision with new disc Bloom, ignoring the impulse to react to the success of 2010’s Teen Dream.
