Natasha Khan taps mixed-media director and stop motion specialist Peter Sluszka to direct a music video for Lilies, the 4th single from the Bat For Lashes critically acclaimed album The Haunted Man. Life-sized puppets, a flock of 2D spirits, miniature landscapes, morphing polygons, and most importantly, Natasha herself were animated to create a universe in constant flux.
Teeming with spectral visions, Sluszka conjures a mysterious landscape for Natasha. Bat For Lashes cryptic lyrics become an incantation, unleashing a trio of curious puppets, torrents of wax and paper ocean, and numerous other animated spectacles. Pulsing cloud contraptions, blasting lightning and energy initiate Natasha's otherworldly transformations.

"In their video for "Bender," Animal Eyes tell the oft-told tale of a man driving in his car in Alaska, seeing a dark figure (I assume it's a bear), then waking up in a diaper in Oregon as part of a body-painting cult. It's happened to all of us!" -Portland Mercury
