Bat For Lashes – aka Natasha Khan – releases her fifth studio album.
Lost Girls is the latest brilliant full-length in Khan’s incredible, acclaimed discography, mixing sounds she’s always loved – heavy bass lines, synth arpeggios, Iranian pop beats, cascading choruses – with some of her finest songwriting to date. It’s an album full of romance, an homage to Los Angeles, to being a kid in the ’80s, to films that touched and changed her life.
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, teenagers make out on car bonnets and a powerful female energy casts spells and leaves clues for us to follow.
Note: the LP version is available on indies-only clear vinyl with red/pink splatter.
