Bat For Lashes – I do (from the album The bride, Parlophone)

I haven’t gone every step of the way with Natasha Khan since her great debut album.

Even on this, her fourth album, there are moments where we part company – the more gratuitously overwrought ones mostly.

This opening track though, this is what she is for.

It’s two minutes of high intrigue and suspense but set against a beautiful baroque keyboard arrangement and a wonderfully restrained vocal performance.

Less.

Is.

More.
