Who is/are Bat for Lashes?
According to Twitter; ”The Bride‘ is out now: http://smarturl.it/iTheBride‘.
Why did you buy this album?
As I mentioned in my post about ‘Fur and Gold‘, this was bought following exposure to the singles ‘Prescilla‘ (from ‘Fur and Gold‘), and this album’s ‘Daniel‘.
What’s it like?
It’s a step forward from ‘Fur and Gold’, leaning more towards art-rock/pop more than its successor. There’s a darker feel to this album, and the obvious Kate Bush influences are toned down, but still there.
After listening to it now, do you (still) like this album?
I’ve listened to this slightly more than ‘Fur and Gold‘ in the past, but during this listen-through, I’ve found I prefer the latter. Sometimes ‘Two Suns‘ can just be a bit too sonically busy for its own good.
Any stand-out tracks?
Again, Bat for Lashes comes out with a strong opener, in this case ‘Glass‘. ‘Moon and Moon‘ is also a personal favourite. Closing track ‘The Big Sleep‘ gets an honourable mention thanks to the appearance of one Scott Walker…
