Bat For Lashes


If you're a real music lover, still you'll barely recognise the name Natasha Khan. Maybe it's because she's using the stage name Bat For Lashes which is more memorable. This talented half-Pakistanian half-English young singer preformes since the release of her Mercury prize winner debut album Fur And Gold (2006). She also released Two Suns (2009) and now you can hear her highly-acclaimed third album called The Haunted man (2012). That's a good reason to hear five tracks of Bat For Lashes, two of them from the new album which might easily get into my 2012 favourite lists. And please. if you don't have enough time just hear fabulous Laura from her recent release. Enjoy...
