Indulgence or Compulsion? An Afternoon with Laura Marling

Perched upon a bar stool, Laura Marling’s unmistakeably clear, nostalgic voice rings out into the Goldsmith’s Student Union, as she winds her way through ‘Wild Fire’ the second track to be released from her sixth studio album, Semper Femina. The record’s title is drawn from a Virgil line, “varium et mutabile semper femina,” which translates as “fickle and changeable, always is woman” – a fitting … Continue reading Indulgence or Compulsion?
