Bat for Lashes

The Dream of Delphi

£11.99

Released: 31st May 2024. 'The Dream Of Delphi' is an ode to motherhood created in LA, Natasha's second home, during the Covid-19 pandemic. It's a sonic archive of a time when Natasha birthed her daughter Delphi earth side. The record weaves together ten song poems, documenting the polarity of navigating both an exterior world that was seemingly turning upside down, whilst also experiencing theprofoundly personal and transformational early moments of mothering Delphi, named after the Greek Oracle, the ancient future teller. 'The Dream Of Delphi' touches on more of an instrumental 'Bat For Lashes' world, and shows Natasha to be both a confident composer and craftswoman of intimate landscapes. While the music creates a more womb-like, ambient space for the listener, it still leaves ample room for her signature dream pop songwriting to vibrate through.
