The latest offering from Natasha Khan’s The Haunted Man reminds us of a song we used to know.
Maybe it’s the finger-plucked riff, the chilling touches of vibrato, or the start-stop percussion, but Bat for Lashes’ ‘All Your Gold’ reminds us of Gotye’s inescapable ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ (thanks to Stereogum for the tip).
Still, Bat for Lashes was crafting haunting tales of regret and loss long before we ever heard of Gotye. ‘All Your Gold’ follows ‘Laura‘ and ‘Marilyn,’ and all three appear on her increasingly-anticipated third album, out on October 15. Khan will tour the UK this fall.
