The first song I heard from Laura Marling was ''My Manic and I'' I really did enjoy the song but the music at the time I was listening to was so different I just never really took any interest after that one encounter.
Recently I have re-discovered her and I am very, very impressed! She's a beautiful singer with a such a delicate voice and what I like most is how diverse her songs are. You have ''Blackberry Stone'' from I Speak Because I Can which has a very, I suppose, quite sad tone through it, the lyrics are very meaningful-to me anyway they're very relatable and her voice is so soft it reminds me of whispering. The violins in the background really add a depth of emotion to the track. From this track to then the slightly more uplifting ''The Captain and the Hourglass'' from Alas I Cannot Swim, although it may not be cheerful lyrically the pace and catchy lyrics definitely lift my spirits! A Creature I Don't Know, Laura's third album, also has a very varied sound in which my favourite is ''Sophia'', I remember hearing it on BBC Radio One and it was so pleasing to hear the unheard for once in a while instead of typical chart music.
I am more than happy that I have re-discovered Laura Marling and given her another chance, her music is absolutely outstanding and I can't wait to hear what she comes up with next.
