    Bat for Lashes—aka Natasha Khan—has dropped the self-directed music video for “Kids in the Dark,” the lead single from her upcoming LP Lost Girls.

    Khan stars in the music video as a character named Nikki Pink who joins a group of vampiric vagabonds roaming the hills of Los Angeles. Pink tenderly courts a love interest, but they ultimately leave him stranded and dazed above the city.

    Khan’s last studio efforts culminated in 2016’s Mercury Music Prize-nominated The Bride. Lost Girls will be released on September 6 by AWAL.
