“No, I can’t give you up.”

“Short Movie” by Laura Marling | Yep, Laura is still at it. It almost felt like she was taking a break from music, if not quitting it altogether, which is a shame considering how prolific she’s been – four albums and she’s just 24. And now, her fifth, Short Movie, announced last night, and slated to make its way to us in March. I’ve been using the term “pastoral” a bit – in my review for alt-J’s latest album, in this blog’s case – and that’s what I also think with this new single. Granted, it’s not very far up Laura’s field – Once I Was An Eagle, her fourth, also played with quiet, albeit with mixed results – but there’s a whimsical sound that plays nicely with the defiant lyrics, in a roundabout way. Of course I’m excited for this. Let’s see where we end up next. [NB]
