Bat For Lashes send out another teaser for upcoming LP with ‘Joe’s Dream’
When you hear that the ethereal Natasha Khan is creating a concept album you get excited. When you hear that it The Bride revolves around a bride-to-be whose lover dies in a car crash on the way to the wedding you may begin to weep. ‘Joe’s Dream’, the latest teaser, will likely make you reach for the tissues. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Hazy and drifting the track moves across the air like a listless cloud with a strong narrative the only anchor. Khan’s sensitive vocal adds heavy gravitas to the fragile nature of the song so if you’re looking for empowerment turn around and walk yourself away.
This one is all about vulnerability and boy does Khan do that sentiment justice with every breathy note.
