Conversations About Her

Bat For Lashes 19.03.2016ANDREW


Bat For Lashes’ new album, The Bride, tells the tale of a woman whose fiance is killed on the way to their wedding. Her new release, “In God’s House”, kicks off that story. It mixes seeming drum machine with brooding and moody keyboards, all plodding at a steady pace. The vocals are haunting, and not long into them it breaks into a beautiful passage of wonder, those keyboards conveying a very different mood to the previous.


However, these keyboards change the mood yet again, back to the emotions conveyed at the start; like going from manic to depressed. The video was conceived by Natasha Khan and co-directed by John De Menil. It sees a bride grieving at the grave of her lost fiancé, the sun setting behind her in the Californian desert.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
