Though every artist has his or her own trajectory, Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan seemed like the kind of songwriter whose creative gestures would only become more and more elaborate with each successive release. Having made a creative leap from her 2008 debut, Fur and Gold, to the conceptually adventurous Two Suns in 2009, she emerged as an artist whose work would likely only get more and more complex and ornately adorned. Yet when she sat down to work on her third album, The Haunted Man, she found herself moving in precisely the opposite direction. More
