Bat for Lashes nominated for ‘Best Female’ Brit Award

“This album elicits a powerful aura, which continues to resonate potently several hours, even days, after the last note has died” ‘Album of the Month’ 4/5 Mojo

“A fiercely original songwriter… it is her third masterpiece and unquestionably one of the albums of the year” The Sunday Times

Bat for Lashes has been nominated for ‘Best Female’ at this year’s Brit Awards, announced last night. The nomination rounds off a stellar year which saw Natasha Khan’s triumphant return with the critically lauded third album, The Haunted Man.

With praise pouring in from all corners of the press, as well as hitting countless end of year lists from The Sunday Times and The Guardian, to the NME, Q and DJ magazine, Natasha Khan maintained her place as one of the UK’s most talented and best loved artists.

The new single ‘A Wall’ will be released on 18 February. With Khan’s signature mix of the electronic and the organic, ‘A Wall’ is “a declaration of doe-eyed devotion that mixes cotton cloud synths with Talk Talk-tinged melodies” (NME). Watch the mysterious video here:

Bat for Lashes first captured hearts back in 2006 with a set of distinctively haunting and rich songs ripe with magic realism. Her dream world was opened up in two Mercury Music Prize nominated albums, Fur and Gold in 2006, followed by 2009’s universally acclaimed Two Suns. The latter also earned Khan two Brit Award nominations and featured the irresistible single ‘Daniel’ – which won her an Ivor Novello award for Best Contemporary Song.

Bat for Lashes will co-headline Field Day in Victoria Park, London with Animal Collective on 25 May 2013. Early bird tickets £50
