TOY and Natasha Khan - The Bride

toy-band.com/ / batforlashes.com

I'd be lying if I said I had any knowledge of the original here but TOY & Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) have produced a stunning cover of a track re-titled "The Bride", originally by Iranian artist Amir Rassaei and entitled "Aroos Khanom" the collaboration is taken from a forthcoming compilation and is released on 7" vinyl via Speedy Wunderground on July 1st - limited to just 250 copies with a B-side dub version called “Here Comes Dub Bride" (pre-order at £10 delivered here).

After initially glistening with haunting piano keys "The Bride" soon becomes increasingly captivating as Natasha's vocals take a forceful hold on you, here more searing than perhaps ever before whilst shimmering guitars build to a blistering, powerful finale as Natasha's repeated wailing cries of "Now My Heart..." echo. Shivers ensue....
