Batting Lashes for Strangelove


I may be just sliding by with slipping you a #MusicMonday tune at 11:45pm Pacific Standard Time on this Monday night, but I came across this song at the last minute that just had to be shared.


The gorgeous Natasha Khan from Bats for Lashes (whom we’ve written about here) just tweeted about her upcoming tour in Australia, which is how I stumbled across the song above. A cover of Depeche Mode’s Strangelove, the song was created for the Gucci Guilty for Him perfume campaign. I usually am not a fan of songs that are created for products but my love for Depeche Mode covers outweighs whatever dislike I may hold. And she’s just so pretty sounding. The cover is ethereal, and reminds me of White Hinterland.

I’m always on the hunt for new songs for #MusicMonday. Keep me posted – if you have a song or an artist that should be featured on a future #MusicMonday, get at me!
