My Manic and I
On October 8th Virgin Records will release Laura Marling's second EP, 'My Manic and I'.
'My Manic and I' EP follows Laura's acclaimed Way Out West single, 'The London Town EP', which was released last April. Since then Laura's songwriting has continued to grow both in its prolificacy and maturity.
The 'My Manic and I EP' showcases what astonishing growth this is for someone so young. Laura's vocals have found a clear identity and increased confidence. The EP features four tracks: New Romantic - the heavily played Myspace favourite and EP lead track; Night Terror - an eerily haunting tale of protection and defiance; My Manic And I - the title track which reflects doubt and delusion at the heart of man, and Typical - a song which deals with the human condition.
Whereas The London Town EP was very much a traditional singer-songwriter affair, the 'My Manic and I' EP her band, who add subtle flourishes to Night Terror and My Manic and I. The EP was produced by Charlie Fink (Noah and The Whale) and engineered by the legendary Phill Brown (Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Talk Talk, Led Zepplin).
