Due to overwhelming demand, Laura Marling had announced a second date at the Roundhouse, in support of her sixth studio album Semper Femina.
Semper Femina was recorded in LA in late 2015 and was largely written out on the road. Its loose lyrical thread strings together her keen, freshly observed take on womanhood and what Laura describes as a particularly ‘masculine time in her life’.
It is a record that similarly addresses questions of how society views sexuality and gender but without seeking to provide definitive answers. It retains an openness to express and portray her own ‘voyage’ of self-discovery, but also to develop and learn as artist, performer, and as an individual over the course of her career.
Alongside the announcement of Semper Femina, comes Laura’s directorial debut with the video for the first fruits of the record and the album’s opening track, Soothing. The inspiration for which was a series of vivid dreams Laura experienced whilst making the album.
An enriching listen, Semper Femina is a typically mature and raw album by one of the most talented and prolific young musicians of a generation.
