On April 9, Bat for Lashes performed inside the BBC Radio One Live Lounge and showcased a cover of Kings of Leon‘s “Use Somebody”.  Delicate in all its detail, the sheer simplicity of an organ and tambourine so effortlessly challenge the meaning behind masculine lyrics, that blend into a feminine masquerade of pure dark yearning.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
