Bat For Lashes Debuted New Material at The Junction in Cambridge Pictures + Video!
A few weeks before leaving for Europe, I just so happened to wake up at 5AM to a tweet from Bat For Lashes stating “Tickets for Bat for Lashes intimate Cambridge Junction performance are now on sale - http://bit.ly/Io3v7W“, I impulsively bought them knowing that this was the only opportunity to see her for a long time.
I knew that some major news from the Bat For Lashes camp was on the way, and sure enough on the day of the show it was announced that Bat for Lashes’ third album titled The Haunted Man would be out on October 5th!
On the afternoon of June 13th, I took a train out to Cambridge and bee-lined directly to The Junction. 45 minutes before showtime the venue was already packed, most of the attendees being die-hard fans who were old enough to be my parents. I was impressed to say the least, you would never see that in New York!
Along with debuting stellar new material for the first time (Marilyn, Laura, Rest Your Head, A Wall), Natasha also debuted her all male band and a more electronic sound. It was a very special and intimate experience that I will never forget, especially since I got stranded in Cambridge for the night. Don’t ask.
Setlist: What’s a Girl To Do? // Sleep Alone // Glass // Travelling Woman // Horse and I // Oh Yeah // Moon and Moon // Marilyn // Laura // Rest Your Head // Prescilla // Siren Song // Trophy // A Wall // Encore: Wilderness // Pearl’s Dream // Daniel
