Play, Pause, Repeat: Bat For Lashes

11 Sep

In honor of this weeks release of “Two Suns” the sophomore album by British wunderkind Bat For Lashes, I bring you a treat from her first effort. Though not exactly new, “What’s a Girl To Do” is one of my favorite videos in recent memory. It is wonderfully understated and simple, using its budget to profound effect. Director Dougal Wilson of Colonial Blimp sees the lovely Natasha Khan on a bike ride through a rather creepy wood. All the while followed by creatures that force a connection to the film “Donnie Darko” that, for better or worse, it may never be able to escape.  Also, kudos to the guys that can do tricks while wearing those masks.  I mean seriously!
