  • the video still isn’t as effective as the one for Whats a Girl To Do (I guess all Bat For Lashes videos will be compared to it) but I still like this video – possibly because I kinda have a thing for Natasha Kahn and I’ll take what I can get.

  • oh and watch it over on youtube the HD version is HUGE

    • I agree, I think she’s amazing – her performance at her concert in London was gorgeous, but this video doesn’t quite work does it? I think it’s mostly the way its shot, and the lenses chosen etc..

      • i cant critique the lenses and things like that but i think there is just a lack of concept/story

      • i don’t think you need a good camera/lenses for a good video. It might change a so-so movie to good, and a good movie to great. i don’t know, either way i would still kill for anything better than my 5 year old handycam.

  • pedro freenandes

    i have a thing with her too. wanna fight?

  • GT

    natasha khan = amazing
    song + natasha khan = still amazing
    video = kinda average.

  • great_work!

  • GD

    This is an abysmal video.

    I love Bat for Lashes, we all do, but this is just poor. Sure they have squeezed a nice look out of a cheap HD camera but my god it doesn’t suit the song at all, the shots of Natasha on the bed singing are just embarrassing.

    Real shame, her videos up to this point have been amazing.

  • Henry

    It’s hard to believe that the singer Natasha Khan is 30 years old.

    She looks really good for her age.

  • sn0wcrash

    Would I sumble upon this on last.fm, I’d be probably rather enthusiastic about it. However, this video pretty much kills the song :-]

  • patsy

    another awful video from her. whats with that? her musics great, but each video makes me cringe. what creative fools does she have running around her convincing her of their vision. its all try too hard high school style.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
