At the age of just 27, Laura Marling is one of the UK’s most beloved and prolific singer-songwriters, with six critically-acclaimed albums under her belt.
Bursting onto Britain’s young folk scene with her startling debut Alas I Cannot Swim in 2008, it was quickly followed by the lauded I Speak Because I Can. Both records were nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize, and won Best British Female at the Brits in 2011.
Now, Laura’s sixth album, Semper Femina, is an intimate, devoted exploration of femininity and female relationships, and among her finest work to date. Written largely on the tour that followed 2015’ s Short Movie and recorded in Los Angeles with production from Blake Mills, it is at once a distinctive and musically compelling collection of songs, run through with Marling’ s fierce intelligence; a keen, beautiful and unparalleled take on womanhood.
