Bat for Lashes

+ Special Guests

Natasha Khan lies on grass with her arms above her head

Bat for Lashes bring us their latest album The Dream of Delphi, an ambitious, tender suite of abstract 'song poems'.

The Dream of Delphi reflects on early motherhood and marks a stunning return and true-to-form reinvention from Natasha Khan - aka Bat for Lashes. 

A highly conceptual show that combines movement and elements of performance art alongside her virtuosic vocal performance and live band, Bat for Lashes invites you on a journey of devotional love songs. Focusing on spirituality, ancestry and folklore, but also the mundane, selfless and tender aspects of child rearing that all mothers can attest to. 

Six albums into a career of vivid creative shifts, examining female archetypes in conceptually rich, musically rewarding explorations, the three time Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominee presents a raw, vulnerably powerful experience.
