Bat For Lashes Releases “The Hunger”
Natasha Khan AKA: Bat For Lashes has released a video for her new song “The Hunger.” The track is off her new album Lost Girls out on September 6 via AWAL Recordings. “The Hunger,” which Khan directed and stars in, is shot in an otherworldly nowhere place, and reveals Khan’s character Nikki Pink’s rise as the head priestess of the Lost Girls, spreading magic and light through a sensual ceremonial performance. A meditation on love, grief, release, and redemption, the video was produced in collaboration with her production company Lief.
Bat For Lashes’ Lost Girls sees Khan dreaming up her own fully formed parallel universe, laying clues on social media. Bat For Lashes previous release The Bride, was melancholy and mournful, a tone poem of loss and regret, Lost Girls is her mischievous younger sister, widescreen in scope and bursting with Technicolour intensity. It’s an album for driving in the dark; holding hands at sunset; jumping off bridges with vampires; riding your bike across the moon. Within the women of Lost Girls and her character Nikki Pink, Khan unfolds elements of herself; within these songs, we do the same.
