Alternative & Indie - Released July 1, 2016 | Because Music Ltd.
The Bat for Lashes universe is one that is all its own. When seeking inspiration for the album, the British singer and producer Natasha Khan wrote and directed a short film. Put together between LA, London, her native Brighton, and Woodstock in New Jersey (where she has a home studio), the whole of The Bride will be performed in a very particular way, like the first singles, which were first performed live in churches. The album itself narrates the story of a woman who watches her husband die en route to their marriage, a theme that is sometimes particularly melancholy (Joe’s Dream). Between the overuse of reverb and lilting vocals, the album is nevertheless pretty and destabilising, which showcases the genuine artistic method that is at work. The producer Dan Carey (Nick Mulvey) and musician Ben Christophers have both supported Natasha Khan, to iron out the creases in this otherwise well-conceived whole.
