Bat for Lashes
Bat for Lashes is currently back in the U.S. to tour with Depeche Mode, but in between those dates, the band booked a few headlining side shows. Not surprising since they did a similar deal when they played Coachella.…
We've been following and documenting Bat For Lashes since 2007, and we've seen singer/songwriter Natasha Khan (the woman behind the band) continually grow as an artist. I believe we covered her first appearance in Minneapolis at the 7th Street Entry in 2007 and then again at the Varsity Theater in 2009.
With the release of her third album The Haunted Man last year, we waited patiently for a major tour announcement. Well, it finally happened: Khan is currently on tour in support of The Haunted Man! As expected, we got to hear some of those new songs played live at last night's show.
The set was about half new songs, with the rest mixing the old hit song, "What's A Girl To Do?" (thanks to that Donnie Darko-inspired video) and some hits from Two Suns (including my favorite "Sleep Alone").
Of the new songs ("Lilies", "Glass", "A Wall", "Laura", "All Your Gold", "The Haunted Man"), I found the latter two tracks worked best, simply because of the catchy dance rhythms. The two songs were so good, that some lone fan at the show got up to dance to "The Haunted Man" that inspired Natasha to encourage everyone to stand up for her finale "Daniel".
Bat For Lashes is currently on tour with Depeche Mode in support of The Haunted Man. If you find it hard to afford a ticket to see Depeche Mode, Bat For Lashes are playing a number of smaller side shows, so check your local listings.
