    With her dazzling second album, Two Suns, Bat For Lashes is set to assume the mantle of the most dynamic and intriguing pop performer in the UK right now. Natasha Khan’s debut Fur And Gold was nominated for the 2007 Mercury Music Prize, and earned two Brit Award nominations for Best Breakthrough and Best Female in 2008. The album’s blend of spooky childhood reveries and magical piano balladry caught the imagination of everyone and not just in the music world. Natasha was feted by the fashion crowd, appearing everywhere from Vogue to Dazed & Confused and she recently collaborated with Alexander McQueen’s McQ label on several one-off pieces featured on the Two Suns artwork. As if that weren’t enough, Bat For Lashes has inspired the making of a fantasy film-musical based on the songs from Fur And Gold . Natasha went on to be chosen by The Guardian as one of 2007’s women of the year – the only musician to appear on their list that year. Bat for Lashes was also asked to support Radiohead on their European tour last summer at the band’s personal request, where she assembled a new live band to explore fresh musical forms, before heading out to New York and the Californian desert to write what has now become Two Suns.

    Rolling Stone (p.66) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Pounding on pianos, cranking out delicate little click-clack beats and shivering through choruses with an ultraromantic soprano, Khan proves she's a powerhouse..."
    Spin (p.76) - "Conjuring ancient tribal vibes from ominous synths and galloping tom-toms, this art-rock Joan of Arc gushes duality motifs that thwart narrative but overflow with moonstruck sensuality."
    Spin (p.33) - Ranked #6 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2009" -- "Consider her a slow-burn siren for our overheated times."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Daniel,' the album's early single, is a seductive, motorik love song, purring of bassline, drowsy of melody and swooning of lyric, it's pure Stevie Nicks circa RUMOURS."
    Blender (Magazine) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Sleep Alone' is a folky dirge about the fear of solitude. 'Daniel,' a shimmering, unfussy new-wave track..."
    Pitchfork (Website) - "A significant step forward from her debut, TWO SUNS is home to some of the year's most thrilling music so far."
    Clash (magazine) (p.109) - "Like Kate Bush, Natasha Khan creates uncompromising, heartbreaking music in a singular, eerie landscape, and it's just a joy that she lets us in."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a concept album about the dual self....'Siren Song' illustrates the concept perfectly, with its two distinct halves, and 'The Big Sleep,' a vaudevillian 'Some Velvet Morning' for the 00s, finds Scott Walker on call-and-response vocals."

    After Bat For Lashes' 2006 debut, FUR AND GOLD, comparisons abound to the likes of CocoRosie and Bjork, but with all due respect to these groundbreaking women, Natasha Khan (aka Bat) is in a league of ethereal transcendence all her own. TWO SUNS may very well position her as the second coming of Kate Bush, with a touch of This Mortal Coil's gothic bliss, Portishead's deep, mournful passion, and even OMD's lushly paranoid electronics peeking in as influences. Whether swirling in a mass of gentle dream-pop on opener "Glass" or allowing her vocals to stand as naked as vintage Laura Nyro in front of ambient piano on "Moon And Moon," Khan has put forth a remarkable sophomore effort, and signifies that she is a songwriter who will be talked about for generations to come.
