The Haunted Man by Bat for Lashes
Bat for Lashes is Natasha Khan, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist. The Haunted Man is her third release and the album sees her stripping away the theatrical influences of her early career. Gone are the wigs and tribal make-up as she moves into the next phase of her musical journey.
Khan has enlisted the help of Beck and Rob Ellis for production duties and the lead single ‘Laura’ is truly amazing, reminiscent of the great torch songs of the 60s. The Haunted Man is an intoxicating and beautifully layered record.
