Laura Marling released the official video for single “Sophia” today, and it’s as lovely as the song itself. Set in a candlelit cathedral, it reminds me of the equally simplistic “New Romantic” video; in fact, juxtaposing the two songs illustrates just how far she’s come musically. Wow.
After you’ve finished watching the two videos, and have gotten over your feelings of inferiority for not being like Laura at age 21, head over to (US) iTunes. Check out Indie Spotlight. Download “Landfill” by Daughter, and buy the rest of her His Young Heart EP for $2.97. Then begin to feel inferior again.
Laura Marling’s highly anticipated third album, A Creature I Don’t Know, is out September 12th in the UK and the 13th in the US. Preorder information is here.
