Laura: the new music video by Bat For Lashes

Yes it’s true. London’s Natasha Kahn’s NSFW black and white album cover portrait is on the front page of pretty much every indie music publication this month. Thirty seconds into the video for her single Laura off of her new album, The Haunted Man, and I too became a converted follower in the kult of Kahn. While most of The Haunted Man is more upbeat than haunting, this wintery track drags you through glorious swells of sorrow. Directed by the collective that go, who also created Röyksopp’s epic short film for their album Senior, the accompanying music video is as gorgeously delicate as the song itself. I’m looking forward to some great covers of this track (Rufus Wainwright, that’s your cue).
