Start playing Bat For Lashes new album The Haunted Man and you enter a parallel dimension full of lights orbiting around you. You wander and walk into a forest, creaking sounds, trees electrified giving off a strange glow. There in the middle you see a creature sitting alone in a dark corner singing by a piano. Other voices rush towards you and you see a house with a party inside. This was what came to mind when we first listened to the album in full. If you like us have played Laura, Marilyn and All Your Gold to pieces already it's immensely intriguing to hear them in this setting. We're absolutely mad for Oh Yeah that leads up to Laura. Its electro beat and drum machine is like a forest path leading up to the magical piano. Album opener Lilies is equally rushing, just to mention a few, with Natasha crying out Thank God I'm Alive! over a soaring horn section and gorgeous strings. It's such a treat to hear her voice, choirs, shimmering electro, 18th centrury references and the grace that binds it all together. Stream it in its entirety below and enter the magical realm where Natasha Khan resides.
