this emotionally charged, deeply affecting, theatrical concept album from natasha khan will send shivers down your spine, through the heartbreaking lyrics & the haunting majesty & intensity.

this cinematic masterpiece follows the story of a woman whose fiancé has been killed in a crash on the way to their wedding. The Bride flees the scene to take the honeymoon trip alone, resulting in a dark meditation on love, loss, grief & celebration - undoubtedly her most ambitious work to date. The lush arrangements (aided by simone felice on production duties), powerful vocals & oblique melodies, make for an exquisite & poignant experience. "eschews overt pop signifiers to foreground the subtlety of khan's melodies, & her voice's expressive power, emphasised by the cinematic production: fathoms of nuanced bass & subtle synth beds that offer a forest's eerie enveloping" 8/10 - uncut.
