As well as a new ‘do, two years spent living in LA has informed a new, bigger, electronic sound, quite different from the wistful musings of the 18-year-old who gave us Alas, I Cannot Swim.
Of her latest release, Short Movie, she says: “I realised that I hadn’t been in one place for longer than two or three weeks since I was 16. I thought, I wonder what will happen if I try and root myself somewhere? Look back over the past eight years.”
The album has been self-produced by Marling, her long-time drummer Matt Ingram and studio engineer Dan Cox.
She plays Cambridge Corn Exchange on 22 April, 7.30pm; tickets are £22.50.
