UK singer-songwriter Laura Marling
is gearing up for the release of her new album Semper Femina
out next week with the songs "Wild Fire," "Next Time," and "Soothing," and now she's out with her latest, "Nothing, Not Nearly." After putting all of these songs together, we're wondering what the final product is going to sound like, because they're all so completely different. "Nothing, Not Nearly," contains conversational vocal delivery that Fiona Apple
or Sara Bareilles
would be proud of. The guitars aren't very folk but much more blues with an edge - like if John Mayer
was cracked out on a St. Vincent
binge. Even though all of the songs are taking us by surprise, they're doing it in a good way, and we can't wait for the full album which is set to arrive on March 10th.
