BAT FOR LASHES & SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS
FRIDAY 17TH APRIL & SUNDAY 19TH APRIL: O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
BAT FOR LASHES creates an intimate, cinematic world, reminiscent of the nocturnal wanderings of Kate Bush and the heartfelt prayers of Cat Power. Natasha composes songs that rise out of a dark, heartbreak wilderness and take you on a journey in to the light. Taking influence from 70's film soundtracks, weather phenomena, childhood Halloween parties and a David Lynchian vision of suburbia, they occupy the tenebrous space between innocence and a loss of innocence and come straight from the storyteller's heart.
Bat For Lashes' music is bold and vivid. Her live shows, with accomplices Ginger Lee, Abi Fry and Lizzy Carey are made up of thunderous marching band drums, desert guitar, ballet school piano, sub-bass snarls, hand-claps and naive beats
School of Seven Bells (often just SVIIB) is a three-piece dream pop/shoegazing band formed by Benjamin Curtis of Secret Machines, together with identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, formerly of On!Air!Library!. The band is named after the School of the Seven Bells, a mythical South American pickpocket training academy.
