God bless Natasha Khan. Whether its dancing in Shoreditch nightclubs dressed in flower-pattern pyjamas (trust me) or making surreal musical concoctions of electronics and acoustics, she does her thing with innocence self-assurance.
Following her 2012 album, The Haunted Man, and last year’s impressive collaboration with Toy and producer Dan Carey, Sexwitch, Khan has stepped back into the guise of Bat for Lashes to bring us her fourth album. ‘In God’s House’ is the second song to be lifted from forthcoming album, The Bride, which is being billed as “a dark meditation on love, loss, grief, and celebration”. On this track, sinister synths collide with shingling twinkles, as Khan pricks the heavens with her falsetto.
In God’s House appears on the album, The Bride, released on July 1, 2016, on Parlophone Records.
