Bat for Lashes Dances With the Devil in the Pale Moonlight


If you haven't seen the ghoulish video for the Bat for Lashes single "Daniel" yet, watch it now, in honor of today's release of the band's excellent second album, Two Suns. The group's half-Brit, half-Pakistani front woman, Natasha Khan, hooded and in sweats, weaves her way in a family car — a set of wheels reminiscent of the green hearse driven by Claire on Six Feet Under — through some sort of gothic forest, harangued like Little Red Riding Hood by human-size, bat-like figures searching for Daniel, whom, she sings, makes her “dream of hope.” And there’s a happy ending.
