I’d been wanting to listen to something a little different than my usual pop fare. Something a little more conceptual and epic in scope.
I discovered Bat For Lashes when I included Two Suns on a Tuesday Tease here. I went on to review her first Two Suns single, “Daniel,” for one of my Single and Listening Editions here. Though looking back now, I know I’ve heard the name before. I just can’t place when and in what context.
I’m listening to it now and so far I love Track 4, “Daniel,” and Track 8, “Pearl’s Dream.” And I love, love, love the front and back cover images. She created a second character, Pearl, who’s on the back of the CD, and I guess she’s herself on the front. Basically, duality is the theme that runs through the CD (Ahem, Two Suns, hello).
