A friend sent me this music video last week, and after countless viewings on You Tube, I have yet to tire from its haunting beauty and tapestry of sounds. The video for ‘Whats a girl to do?’ by British-born vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Natasha Khan, more famously known as Bats for Lashes, is brazenly stylish and utterly captivating.  Director Dougal Wilson perfectly captures the song’s sinister and entrancing nature, as eerie mascot-headed bmxers pop, wheelie and clap hands in sync with the electronic beats and ghostly strings of this dark fairy tale.
