So, after a few video posts, I feel rather lazy posting this, but I’ve been anxiously anticipating this music video ever since I heard the first Bat For Lashes single, “Daniel” a month or so ago. As I’ve already mentioned, I am completely enamored with her new album, “Two Suns”. I think it’s without a doubt the best album of the year thus far. And, it’s not even released yet. Not till April. Yeah, I know, I’m awful…But this video is so perfectly suited to the song. It’s unsettling, haunting and creepy. I get the same feeling from this video that I get from really powerful art installation pieces or movies. Lynch, of course, comes to mind. And the “Karate Kid” references don’t hurt, either. I’m diggin it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And, of course, I can’t not include this “Mulholland Drive” homage set to “The Big Sleep” off the new album…
