Prepare to be seduced by the fresh face of folk. Laura Marling may still be young, but she certainly isn't dumb. The 17 year old small town girl - Eversely just outside of Reading (UK) to be exact - doesn't just sing about love, lust and romance but of the futility of religion, self-loathing and human psychology. The latest cutesy pop-puppet on the block, she ain't. Laura has been writing her own songs for over five years, but admits that she only got good a year and a half ago - "when I stopped singing in an American accent".
