"This creative process has been really fun. I love that YMC are a small British family based company and admire their commitment to beautiful, simple design that is good quality. I have enjoyed the freedom and natural development of this project being allowed to feel our way and come up with something genuinely beautiful, meaningful and special!" - Natasha Khan
Bat for Lashes songwriter Natasha Khan is the latest artist to get her own clothing line, and she has teamed up with fashion label to YMC to release a video in support of the collection.
Directed by Khan herself, the clip is under two minutes long, and it features a song called "Under the Indigo Moon." This was written with Beck, and features a crunchy electronic beat with wispy synths and sparse vocal coos. The accompanying video is a nostalgic, retro-flavoured affair that shows Khan and a gentleman friend hanging out in Los Angeles and wearing clothes from the line.
Apparently this may be the last music we hear from Khan in a while, since she's planning to focus on film in the near future. She told Nowness, "I'm writing a screenplay for a short for FilmFour. It's a really dark, gritty, family based drama, with hints of magic realism. We're going into pre-production soon with a view to make it into a feature-length film in the next couple of years. I've got some things up my sleeve with my producer Dan Carey, so I want it to be a music and visual collaboration. I'm going to illustration classes at the moment, and I've got a huge desire to tell stories through film and paintings rather than just music, so Bat For Lashes is on hold for the meanwhile."
