RATING: “PUSH PLAY”
A prominent contributor to the London folk scene, Laura Marling has just released her fourth full studio album Once I Was an Eagle. The artist’s first three records were met with critical praise, and now at age 23 her latest effort echoes the same poignant lyricism and profound musicality that earned her a noticeable place in the British indie scene.
Once I Was an Eagle is a riveting record that will leave its listeners brimming with satisfaction. Marling takes her listeners on an intimate adventure through her life. If the album had to be summed up in one word, it would be “ineffable”. Fans of Regina Spektor, Noah and the Whale, and First Aid Kit will also like Laura Marling.
Beautiful. London. Folk. “PUSH PLAY”
