Music / Fur and Gold

Go To
''We walked on and on / but I didn't feel his touch / the desire I once tried to hide / that tingling inside / was gone"
Got woken in the night
By a mystic golden light
My head soaked in river water
"Horse and I"

Fur and Gold is the debut album by Bat for Lashes, released in 2006. It was released to critical acclaim, and is definitely a case of First Installment Wins.

It's a dark and atmospheric record, and is inspired by genres like Folk Music, Electronic Music, and Psychedelic Rock. It also has a sort of fairy tale, fantasy theme to it, and is the start of her "mystical" sound. The singles from the album are "The Wizard", "Trophy", "Prescilla", and "What's a Girl to Do?", which was the album's biggest hit.
