Produced by Laura Marling. I am paying for my mistake That's okay I don't mind a little pain It's a short fucking movie, man I know I won't try and take it slow Bottled water, called a drought Come on, what's that about Keep me sick to make me well Come on, what the hell. I got up in the world today Wondered who it was I could save Who do you think you are?
Laura Marling has just embarked on another branch of her evolution. One expects nothing less from the famed folk singer, who's personal life has been the centre of her song-writing since her debut album Alas, I Cannot Swim. In the interim between 2013's Once I Was An Eagle and her newest release Short Movie, Marling has had plenty of fodder. Short Movie stretches its cohesive motifs through all thirteen tracks, without sticking to a plot or forced narrative structure. The songs can be rearranged and the album still retains its structure and nuance. Easy' evokes the sadness in growing up, a sort of musical rendition of Dylan Thomas' Fern Hill. Divine' operates in part as a definitive meta-song about Marling's own song writing, but it is an elastic metaphor.

Short Movie is Laura Marling's most open and airy album yet, though it remains enigmatic. It is her first album written on electric guitar, and she clutches every guitar fill like it’s a long-lost piece of her identity, luxuriating in space and writing bigger and hazier songs to match. Laura Marling is a particularly standoffish singer/songwriter, reserved in interviews and tauntingly prickly in song; a typical line, from A Creature I Don’t Know standout "Sophia", is "I never did say whatever it was you did that da. As she’s grown, she’s moved farther in this direction, away from the plain-spoken vulnerability of Alas, I Cannot Swim into vocals that curl words into secretive murmurs, and lyrics that tiptoe up to confessions then stop just short. Mythology and formal allusions swirl around even her candid moments, assuring that any autobiography is lost.
That said, Marling is an unrepentant folkie, and those late-night blasts of tube-driven self-evaluation and raw verisimilitude eventually give way to bleary-eyed mornings spent assessing the wreckage, and the album's best moments arrive via the aged wood and steel of her trusty acoustic
Laura Marling – Short Movie. on March 19, 2015, 12:01am. The title song stands out as a unified declaration of this reborn Laura Marling. She flexes her exquisite fingerpicking skills on electric guitar as her lyrics alternate between affirming her artistic presence and establishing independence from an unhealthy relationship. As the song peaks with the wrenching lyrics, They know that I loved you/ But they’ll never know why, Marling stakes her claim as one of today’s most expressive songwriters alongside contemporaries Angel Olsen, Mark Kozelek, and Sharon Van Etten.
