"Bat for lashes" is Natasha Khan's band. I've been listening a lot to her lately, the whimsical sound amazes me. But she's not only daring in music terms, but in the way she shows herself to the world: covered in gold jewerly, feathers, sequins and dramatic make-up (all at once). Not being mainstream is pretty much a quality these days and Natasha's not scared to be the eccentric one of the gang, which makes her truly a character.
By the way, just if you're curious about how she sounds: Her songs Glass & What's a girl to do are great (make sure you check out the videoclip on youtube). Also, I highly recommend her Use Somebody (originally by the kings of Leon) cover.
