NATASH KHAN (a.k.a. BAT FOR LASHES) is a BRITISH singer-songwriter of partial PAKISTANI descent known for her lush DREAM POP sound and terse lyricism that are often biographical allegories.
in my mind she is the next progression in modern pop music that has emerged out of the UNITED KINGDOM post-BRITPOP as she is the very physical embodiment, much like M.I.A. (SRI LANKA) and STORMZY (GHANA), of an exceedingly multi-cultural youth culture. and from this web of diverse second-generation immigrants comes new cultural touchstones that reflect with authenticity on the changing definition of BRITISH identity.
but aside all that her music is dense and thought-provoking. well worth investigating.
