Alter egoâ€™s are nothing new when it comes to musicians, from Beyonceâ€™s beyond corny Sasha Fierce, Eminemâ€™s dark side Slim Shady, to Garth Brookeâ€™s alternative rock weirdo Chris Gaines and now Bat For Lashesâ€™ sinister blonde rendition Pearl. First of all, I started cracking up with the dramatic introduction of Pearl in this video. A blonde Natasha Khan looks like a strange creature from another dimension, but then again I think thatâ€™s the effect they were going for.
This is clearly a new version of Pearlâ€™s Dream, the version on Two Suns isnâ€™t as involved rhythmically. The producers did the same for the video version of Daniel, which also differs in terms of arrangement and drums. Yet another extremely creative and entertaining video from Bat for Lashes, enjoy.
