Bat for Lashes is headed by Natasha Kahn, a singer/songwriter from Brighton. "What's a Girl to do" is a single off her 2006 album Fur and Gold. Her music's been compared to Björk, PJ Harvey, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Fiona Apple, Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac.
I just saw something from her new album Two Suns (released earlier this month) on MuchMusic and it reminded me of this genius video featuring bunny hops by bmx-ers dressed as bunnies (and other woodland creatures). Kind of a Donnie-Darko-on-his-way-home-from-the-bike-park sort of feel. Loves it. And will be checking out the new album tonight for sure. By the way, she's playing the Mod Club in Toronto this Saturday night!
