What's A Girl To Do?

Another gem from Very Short List:

"According to the MySpace page for British band Bat for Lashes — the brainchild of singer–songwriter–visual artist Natasha Khan — the group’s influences swing from David Lynch to E.T. to “voodoo conjurers.” And somehow, when you watch the video for their single “What’s a Girl to Do?,” you can see what they mean.

Directed by Dougal Wilson, the video opens on a dark, starry sky before panning down to the attractive 27-year-old Khan riding a bicycle alone down a deserted road. Her dreamy voice and lyrics are a perfect complement to the video’s ethereal mood: Four bicyclists, wearing giant furry animal heads and hoodie sweatshirts, eventually join her; they proceed to disappear, reappear, and impressively jump in formation."

Here is the featured video and another selected video for your Friday viewing pleasure. Happy Weekend!

Great songs! You have introduced me to a new artist, I love when that happens. I just purchased tickets to see her at Maxwell's in Hoboken.

Thanks Again
