As most of you know, I’ve been a HUGE fan of “Two Suns” by Bat for Lashes since the first leak. The video for “Daniel” did a damn fine job of visualizing a densely layered, enigmatic song in ways I never could have imagined. I was a wishin and hopin that the second single would be “Glass” or “Two Planets”, my two favorite tracks. Well, it’s not. It’s “Pearl’s Dream”, which is a solid song, but not what I expected. The video, however, does the song, and album, justice. Without giving too much away, let’s just say there’s a snarling wolf, make-shift solar system, fog machine and Natasha’s sinister alter ego, Pearl, finally makes her debut….My only snarky comment: Natasha, Brandon Flowers wants his feather jacket back, ASAP.
