BAT FOR LASHES by Peter Sluszka

ABOUT

Natasha Khan taps mixed-media director and stop motion specialist Peter Sluszka to direct a music video for Lilies, the 4th single from the Bat for Lashes' critically acclaimed album The Haunted Man. Life-sized puppets, a flock of 2D spirits, miniature landscapes, morphing polygons, and most importantly, Natasha herself were animated to create a universe in constant flux.

 

Teeming with spectral visions, Sluszka conjures a mysterious landscape for Natasha. Bat For Lashes cryptic lyrics become an incantation, unleashing a trio of curious puppets, torrents of wax and paper ocean, and numerous other animated spectacles. Pulsing cloud contraptions, blasting lightning and energy initiate Natasha's otherworldly transformations.
