Bat For Lashes - Lost Girls
Sep 6, 2019
77
An album absolutely oozing in 80s synth influence that others have pointed out for obvious reasons. This causes the album to lack in a certain level of originality but does land in the realm of execution.

Khan has a dreamy quality to her voice, one that I've largely missed out on up to this point. Her voice meshes well with the 80s vibe, feeling straight from a past era but still having the quality production and sounds that make this sound fresh to a degree, although again not entirely new. This isn't the largest knock, as working from your influences but creating something fresh from them is still a worthwhile venture. The production here is skillful and illustrious, constantly churning out sometimes eerie and other times deliciously gorgeous sound quality. There is something truly theatrical about these tracks, sounding straight from a film score. However, that doesn't make these tracks feel like they are made for that purpose and only have the quality of something within this medium.

An album worth venturing into as a nostalgic trip as well as a modern take on an old style of sound, Khan's trip down memory lane on Lost Girls is a trip worth taking along with the artist.

Favorite track: Jasmine
