Where Can I Go?
London indie folk musician Laura Marling will release her fourth studio album, Once I Was An Eagle, in May. Today, we get a taste of that record with “Where Can I Go?”, a lovely track that starts off melancholic and wistful, exact fingers dancing over an acoustic guitar, only to later be stirred up with a vigorous, bold confidence towards the end. Whether it’s her beautiful, captivating vocals, or the loud, hearty organ, there’s a real commanding and emotional power in Marling’s latest offering and we can’t wait to see what the rest of her LP will sound like.
