Bat For Lashes
The Haunted Man
Parlophone

“Where you see a wall, I see a door,” Natasha Khan, or Bat For Lashes, sings on the track, “A Wall.” On her latest album, The Haunted Man, seeing a wall is easy to believe. The album is sublime and beautiful, leaving behind an emotionally-rich portrait of the young multi-instrumentalist; exceedingly ambitious and unafraid. The album contains one of her best songs to date, “Laura,” a somber, contemplative ballad about a girl, “stuck in a pale blue dream,” desperately trying to cling to youth while everyone else grows up. The Haunted Man is another fantastic album from one of today’s most talented artists. —Jefferson Sporn
