Bat For Lashes - The Dream Of Delphi

$30.00

This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.

A composition of intimate landscapes and consuming ambience.
Description

The Dream Of Delphi is an ode to motherhood; 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 during the covid-19 pandemic, whilst also experiencing the profoundly personal and transformational early moments of mothering Delphi, named after the Greek Oracle, the ancient future teller. The album 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 womb-like, ambient space for the listener, it still leaves ample room for her signature dream pop songwriting to vibrate through. 

 

This music was Natasha’s sanctuary, born out of stolen trips to the studio, where each track was improvised and completed in a few hours and chronologises her diary like offerings over a period of two years. From “The Midwives Have Left”, to writing a “Letter To My Daughter”, and all the way through to “Waking up”, as well as a cover of her daughter’s favourite song, “Home”. For the first time, The Dream Of Delphi reveals Natasha’s personal experience of the magical and sometimes melancholy intimacy of early motherhood. This record creates a more private form of mythology around the music than her previous work.
