Talk shit get hit.
best delivery of a verbal bitch slap in cinematic history.
What people miss about Laura is that she’s very funny and that she’s a very nice person. I think she’s distant only in that her consciousness wanders a bit. And she doesn’t do small talk. People always say she’s wise beyond her years, but she’s still a 23 year old in a lot of ways. She happens to be an exceptionally bright young woman and a very wise one but she’s still a young woman - Ethan Johns talking about Laura Marling
"My songs are not pretty. They’re what I call, optimistic realism." -Laura Marling
"I’m not an awkward 18-year-old anymore and I don’t feel like an awkward 18-year-old anymore. I’m more comfortable in my skin than I used to be. And that’s a great relief, my God! And also, I care a bit less. I’m not as self-aware as I was when I was 19 or 20, when I either wanted to fit in or to stand out. Now I know where I fit in and that brings a bit of comfort."

“There’s a conditioning that that’s just what you do. I know it’s not the same for everybody, but that, to me, becomes like the conditioning back in childhood. You’re told when to sleep, you’re told what time to get up. You’re told to take a shower, when to take a shower. That stuff will rot your brain. I’m not surprised that so many musicians become drug addicts. What the fuck? If you stop exercising that part of your adult brain then obviously you’re not going to be able to cope when you get back into reality. I have combated that now by touring on my own, without a tour manager, without a guitar tech, and it allows me to remain in reality and to remain human. I think if I was touring with a band it wouldn’t be possible; but on my own it’s more than possible for me to do that. And that absolutely keeps me from being complacent because I am constantly on my toes, getting myself from one place to the other or setting up guitars. It’s nice to feel like I’m working, like there’s some labor to my love, because playing guitar and singing songs is my absolute pleasure but sometimes it’s nice to feel like it’s a job, too.” - Laura Marling

↳2/10: Laura MarlingI get a lot of joy from playing the guitar and writing songs, and apart from that not much else matters to me…in terms of music. So I protect that joy, that pleasure fiercely.
I definitely tell things at arm’s length but that is conscious. No part of me wants everybody to know what’s going on.
