Bat for Lashes

Uma das minhas artistas favoritas é a inglesa Natasha Khan, mais conhecida como Bat for Lashes. Ela não é exatamente uma referência de moda pra mim, mas é definitivamente um exemplo de criatividade. Não que ela se vista mal. A questão é que ela adota uns alter egos que acaba levando muito a sério, como exercícios criativos. (Acho o máximo!!!)
Suas músicas são bastante experimentais, mesclam o mais elementar e antigo ao eletrônico, e a cada canção somos levados por uma verdadeira corrente sentimental!
Ela consegue criar uma ambientação sonora que nos remete a sensações imagéticas, como se estivéssemos numa floresta encantada, repleta de fadas e seres mágicos.
Ano que vem ela desembarca no Brasil para abrir um show do Cold Play. Eu, sinceramente, acho que o Cold Play é que devia abrir o show dela! Estou feliz, mas já meio apreensiva com os precinhos salgados do ingresso.
Acho que um show dela deve ser uma experiência sensorial e tanto!
Pra quem se interessou, seus dois álbuns são Fur and Gold e o mais novo, Two Suns.

To live life outside of the world
To break the cross that bears her name
She's not your queen anymore,
queen of the highway
needs something better than learning away
She really loves him, Prescilla


Autumn's hue in those sad eyes
Makes me love and love them more
I'll have a bath, I'll make the dinner
and then I'll go wait for a long long time
But still you've not passed my door
And when you smile those sad eyes
Look sadder and sadder still

The smell of redwood giants.
The banquet for the shadows.
Horse and I, we're dancers in the dark.
Came upon the headdress.
It was gilded, dark and golden.
The children sang.
I was so afraid I took it to my head and prayed.

The trophy that I made for us
In fur and gold
Got into the wrong pair of hands
In truth was sold
The naughty for was so much less
Than it was worth
And every man that touched it
Found a heaven on earth

We walked arm in arm

But I didn't feel his touch

A desire I'd first tried to hide,

That tingling inside was gone

And when he asked me:'do you still love me?'

I had to look away

I didn't want to tell him

That my heart grows colder with each day

Daniel, when I first saw you
I knew that you had a flame in your heart
And under under our blue skies
Marble movie skies
I found a home in your eyes
We'll never be apart

Till the siren come calling, calling
It's driving me evil, evil.
I was a heartbreaker, I loved you
The same way I do.
I've got so much wickedness and sin.
My name is pearl
And I'll love you the best way I know how
My blonde curls slice through your heart.
And the siren come calling
It won't be long
Untill you runing.
