Laura Marling

Night Terror

“I woke up on a bench on Shepherd’s Bush Green” – yeah, sounds familiar, but in Laura’s case, it probably wasn’t after being wrestled out of K West having run up a £500 cognac bill. ‘Night Terror’ is genuinely unsettling with its rusty violin, rattling chains, and folk music as chilling fable rather than fireside romp. It all finally convinces us that Laura Marling is actually a Victorian ghost sent into the future to put the willies up thoughtless hedonists like us.
