In support of her new album, Short Movie, Laura Marling comes to the 9:30 Club this Friday, July 31st. Short Movie is her fifth full length album, and has been described as ‘bolder and looser’ than her previous work. The album is an introspective work, brought about by time spent reading (poetry), hiking (near the Joshua Tree) and reflecting, which led to songs about salvation, peace, and humanity.
Rolling Stone said “Marling is the most compelling singer-songwriter of the U.K. roots-revival scene, with a voice that conjures young Joni Mitchell.”
Marling is from Eversley, England and won the 2011 Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist. After three of her previous albums were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, and having received critical acclaim for her last album, Once I Was An Eagle, she brings a new sound and a new attitude.
Let’s join her this Friday!
Tickets are available here.
