Bat For Lashes at St George's Church
Dave & I went to church on Thursday. And we sat in the pews and drank beer. There was good reason for this; we came to see Bat For Lashes, aka Natasha Khan, Brighton's very own quirky female singer/songwriter, backed by Ginger & Abi (from Dom's band) and Lizzie who I used to work with a couple of years back. St George's Church was the perfect venue to see this band - all crisp vocals and a multitude of instruments and sounds (guitar, viola, bass drum, keyboards, staff, handclaps...) which the girls traded in between songs. Add to which Josh T. Pierson ambled on to lend his backing vocals to current single Trophy. The band played the majority of debut album Fur And Gold and finished with my favourite track Prescilla - magical. Apparently Bjork checked out their recent London show and it's no surprise to discover she's a fan... I'll certainly be in the audience again next time they play.
