Laura Marling Short Movie on 2LP
Laura Marling returns with her fifth studio album in seven years Short Movie. The album, a follow up to 2013’s Mercury Prize nominated Once I Was An Eagle, marks a new chapter in her sound and development as an artist. Marling produced the album, which was recorded at Urchin Studios in London and aided by her long time drummer Matt Ingram and studio engineer Dan Cox.
Short Movie sees Marling moving into new musical territory and may surprise fans with it’s prevalence of electric guitar. This apparent shift in sound can be attributed to her extended period of reflection and a conscious attempt to change her routine. The songs portray a striking new confidence in their mood, sound, and temperament.
“I realized that I hadn’t been in one place for longer than two or three weeks since I was 16” she explains, “I thought I wonder what would happen if I try and root myself somewhere?” Short Movie is what happened – an album freer and looser sounding than anything she has done before.
Recording since the age of 17, Laura Marling’s flawless output has established her as one of the most respected artists of her generation. Her career so far includes two Brit Award nominations (winning in 2011), three Mercury Prize nominations, as well as an NME Award for Best Solo Artist.
“It’s the first to feature Marling moving from acoustic to electric guitars, and that shift has added a heft to her exquisitely crafted and performed songs.” - Los Angeles Times
