Laura Marling "Strange"

Laura Marling 'Strange'
British songwriter Laura Marling is branching out with her new album Short Movie. While some tracks sport an electric sound, her newly unveiled "Strange" showcases a unique half-spoken vocal delivery.

The song is anchored by a brisk acoustic strums and pitter-pattering percussion, while Marling delivers poetry in drawling sing-speak. She shifts into her usual register at a couple points, but the vibe here is closer to that of a Beat poet than a typical singer-songwriter.

Short Movie drops on March 24 through Ribbon Music/Virgin EMI.
