The Buzz: Drama runs deep on Bat for Lashes’ latest album. Natasha Khan, a.k.a. Bat for Lashes, infuses her songs with stories, be it a yearning to be loved and fleeting specialness in “Marilyn” or trying to survive as the last single girl left standing in “Laura.” While dramatics can make pop onerous (see: Lana Del Rey), the combination of Khan’s incredible singing voice and incisive lyrics will leave you breathless.
Listen: “All Your Gold” starts with a spare electric beat, opening up into a throbbing dance number that will have you moving to the irresistible tune.
