Lyric Of The Week

Laura Marling – “Sophia”

The building of energy in this song never fails to give me goosebumps. I love all the words, but these lines especially resonate with me… she says them just as the tune approaches that dramatic dynamic change:

“Sometimes I sit, sometimes I stare
Sometimes they look and sometimes I don’t care
Rarely I weep, sometimes I must
I’m wounded by dust”

Laura Marling – “Sophia”

Ok, give this song a minute. Actually, a minute and 25 seconds. It’s a slow start, but it’s incredible! We weren’t sure about playing it on mvy…it’s tough when a song doesn’t grab the listener’s attention within the first minute. But ultimately this song is flippin’ gorgeous, and Laura Marling is truly channeling a Joni Mitchell feel towards the second half. The video is so fitting too. She begins sitting alone, and then walks up to the rest of her band as the song builds. Dynamite.
