Bat For Lashes — The Hunger/Lost Girls  (Sept. 6, 2019)      Bat For Lashes — The Hunger/Lost Girls (Sept. 6, 2019) Pamela MÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃéndez ÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃÃâ Time (22 Feb 2019)Editorial Reviews
o••o      Uznávaná britsko / pakistánská zpěvačka / skladatelka s vlivy sahajícími od Steve Reicha po Siouxsie Sioux. Ukázalo se být prozíravým, že mediální prostředek Tais Awards & Harvest Prize má ve svém názvu předponu BAT. V závislosti na trpělivosti posluchačů však může být pomalá  část Lost Girls hypnotická nebo mdlá. Přesto je těžké nechtít, aby Bat for Lashes šla stále dál touto cestou. Zatímco na „Haunted Man“ Khan používala velkou dávku zdrženlivosti, „Lost Girls“ je krásně vytvořená, ne však vždy vzrušující. Kytary zní brilantně, znějí podobně jako z Frippovy dílny, hlas pořád hladí, zraje, je absolutně přesný. Analogové Hammondky zní krásně jako v 70’, všechny písničky se pohybují společně a kompaktně. Album je vlastně moje oblíbená forma Bat for Lashes. Nálada je elegantní, melodie jsou víc než v pořádku. Texty mohou být pro některé lidi příliš smutné. Příběh je skvělý. Na albu jsou některé z nejlepších písní, které Bat For Lashes kdy vydala. Toto je jedno z nejlepších alternativních popových alb vůbec. Melodie jsou dechberoucí a inteligentní.

o••o       Lost Girls is another brilliant full~length in Khan’s incredible, acclaimed discography, mixing sounds she’s always loved — heavy bass lines, synth arpeggios, Iranian pop beats, cascading choruses — with some of her finest songwriting to date. It’s an album full of romance, a homage to Los Angeles where the album was recorded, to being a kid in the 80’s, to films that touched and changed her life. Spanning 10 tracks, Lost Girls sees Khan dreaming up her own fully formed parallel universe, creating an off~kilter coming of age film in which gangs of marauding female bikers roam our streets, teenagers make out on car hoods and a powerful female energy casts spells and leave clues for us to follow. The women of Lost Girls are parallel to one of Khan’s previous female protagonists, the tough, darkness~driven Pearl, from her 2009 lauded album Two Suns. Within the women of Lost Girls and the character Nikki Pink, Khan unfolds elements of herself; within these songs, we do the same.

About:
••      When Bat For Lashes first announced the new album Lost Girls, the follow~up to 2016’s The Bride, she did it with the rapturous new synthpop track “Kids In The Dark.” And in the song’s video, Natasha Khan and friends appeared as young Los Angeles vampires, playing out a tragically doomed romance. Today, Khan has shared another song from Lost Girls, and this one, “The Hunger,” happens to share a title with The Hunger, Tony Scott’s cult~beloved 1983 postpunk vampire movie — the one that starred David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve, Susan Sarandon, and, in a memorable opening nightclub scene, Bauhaus. This cannot be a coincidence.
••      “The Hunger” follows “Kids In The Dark” and “Feel For You” as the third song we’ve heard from Lost Girls. It’s exactly the type of rich, dark, textured beauty that we have come to expect from Bat For Lashes, with Khan’s voice soaring above chiming keyboards and rippling guitar sounds and reverbed~out drum booms. And the lyrics all seem to play out the vampire theme: “I want to breathe / And feel this forever / But I want to feed / The hunger inside.”
••      Sadly, the video for “The Hunger” is totally free of vampire~related content. But it’s still a cool video. Natasha Khan plays some kind of cult leader, commanding a desert~based coven as they play out a mysterious ritual.
Lost Girls: Avery Wheless, Evangeline Neuhart, Dominique N Godinez, Kenzie McClure, Angelica DeWitt
