Laura Marling goes to church. And gets angry.
Not much happens in this video: Laura Marling* in a cathedral. But the song is strong enough to carry it. Really, the whole video hinges on the way she spits the lyrics through gritted teeth. She stands before the maker, stares up and delivers this takeaway: "Where I've been lately is no concern of yours."
I am seeing Laura this September in a synagogue, but the UK fans can practically recreate this video by seeing her in a cathedral.
Bring on fall. I am tired of this summer shit. I want cold bones and moods and rain.
*She really is like the Fanning sister with an axe to grind, isn't she? Love her.
