We would normally save something like the ever-impressive, always enticing, and utterly mesmerising Laura Marling so a quiet Sunday treat. But ‘Soothing’, the latest track from the maestro of quaint melancholy is so alluring we couldn’t help ourselves.
The track melts along with a heavy hit of double bass, a sumptuous lead vocal line that is delicate and daring while the lyrics of Marling’s still feel as poignant and poetic as ever. ‘Soothing’ even has an interesting (self-directed) video to say the least.
Filled with leather-clad ladies dancing and writhing over a bed it speaks of a struggle and a tempting one at that. A theme which is matched in the lyrics of this heartbreaker of a track.
