Bat for Lashes is not a band, but the stage name of Natasha Khan, a critically praised English musician. She plays multiple instruments including the piano, the harpsichord and the autoharp. She also has a background in the visual arts, which shows in her elaborate shamanic costumes and sets. Her work has been described as "mystical indie pop", with its lush, ethereal soundscapes and lyrics that are, uh, mystical. Her first album, Fur and Gold, was more earthy and insular in its instrumentation and her second album, Two Suns, features more electronic influences.


  • Fur and Gold (2006)
  • Two Suns (2009)

Provides examples of:

 Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby, edgy and blunt

And cut a 6-inch valley through the middle of my... soul

  • Tear Jerker: Natasha's music has alternately been described as 'sad music made by a sad girl.'
    • Case in point: "Sad Eyes". An incredibly appropriate title.
  • Triang Relations: The song "Prescilla", which features the heroine, Karen, who loves an unnamed man...but the man loves Prescilla.
