Over the past week, Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan has been teasing something mysterious through a game of Instagram hangman. That something is Sexwitch.
As Pitchfork reports, rather than a new Bat For Lashes album, it’s actually an entirely new band, a collaboration between Natasha Khan, kraut-psych band TOY, and producer Dan Carey. Khan previously worked with Carey on Bat For Lashes’ 2012 album The Haunted Man, and all three teamed up in 2013 for “The Bride,” a cover of an old Iranian psych-rock song for the Zendooni: Funk, Psychedelia And Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation compilation for Carey’s label Speedy Wunderground. Sexwitch made their live debut today at the Green Man Festival in Wales, playing a number of songs (including “The Bride”) presumably from a forthcoming debut album, although no details have been announced yet. Watch a few fan-shot clips below.
Maybe Sexwitch is coming soon?
