No doubts about this: Short Movie is a masterpiece.
Short Movie feels like the work of someone who’s going to be around for a long time.
At just 25, UK folk artist Laura Marling has accomplished more than many artists do their entire career.
With five albums and numerous awards already under her belt, Marling’s extensive body of work is matched only by her desire to push the boundaries of her musical comfort level.
Showing further precision and maturity with each release, Marling’s already captivating sound and alluring on-stage presence have enthralled audiences since she arrived on the British indie-folk scene seven years ago.
Following her sold out national tour in 2013, Marling returns to Australia with a full band on the back of her latest release, Short Movie. The self-produced record sees Marling moving towards a bigger and more electric feel while crafting a much looser sound than anything she has done before—showing further development for an artist who is already viewed as treasure among her contemporaries.
