New Romantic

This song has been played more times than i count over the past four years. Laura Marling has perfected the art of intertwining lyrics, vocal melody and instruments to create enchanting songs that have depth to the meaning.
         New Romantic
         Laura Marling

In my opinion, New Romantic is one of Laura's greatest songs and it reflects the artist's style entirely. The quirky chords that rumble beneath her almost angelic voice singing the fast paced lyrics provides a wonderful texture that is completely alluring. Laura Marling is a wonderful lyricist and this song shows her clear talent; she writes with honesty and doesn't confine her lyrics for a specific audience by sugar coating her words. I adore the line "i would never love a man 'cause love and pain go hand in hand" because it is such a realistic way of viewing the situation of the song, which you can always rely on Laura's lyrics to convey. I also adore the style of melody that the vocals have; the range of notes combined with a lively tempo takes the listener on a journey with the emotion portrayed in the song, making it even more intriguing to listen to.

Oh, and if you do recognise her beautiful voice it is because Laura sang with Noah And The Whale to the track 'Five Years Time'. Umhum, that definitely made you obsessed with her now, right?

  5. I ADORE Laura Marling! You put it perfectly, she has indeed perfected the art of her music. I'm convinced she's secretly a fairy. There's this song that she recorded that has only been played in an episode of Skins, and it's called "Of A Hope" and she hasn't released the full official version of it yet, and I want her to SO bad, because it's just so beautiful!

    Thank you so much for the comment on my blog, Mollie!
