Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 73: Bat For Lashes ‘Lilies’

Lately, I’ve been feeling my age a little bit. Things like knowing that the original The Legend of Zelda came out 27 years ago as well as the 3D rerelease of Jurassic Park are sharp reminders that I’m no longer a spring chicken. These thoughts make me yearn for a time when things were a bit more innocent, a bit more simple.

That’s the feeling I get when seeing Bat For Lashes new video for ‘Lilies’, which comes off her latest album The Haunted Man (review“). Watching it, I’m reminded of films like Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal and books like Where The Wild Things Are. There are strange, outlandish monsters but there is something playful and reassuring about them. Give it a view below and let nostalgia work its way into you.
