'A Creature I Don't Know' is British singer/songwriter and guitarist Laura Marling's third album.
Since her emergence onto the London music scene in 2007 Laura Marling has steadily secured her position as one of the most exciting musical talents of her generation. By the age of 21 she had already won a BRIT award and been nominated for the UK Mercury Music prize twice.
Recorded with producer Ethan Johns (who also helmed her acclaimed sophomore album 'I Speak Because I Can'), 'A Creature I Don't Know' is a boldly accomplished and endlessly impressive album. 10 original compositions of intricate and captivating story-telling, buoyed by Marling's rich voice, evocative lyrics and precise, confident instrumentation on every track. Marling's delivery is pitch perfect, her voice going from delicate whisper to brooding murmur and rousing wail, sometimes all in the very same sentence.
Johns' production of 'A Creature I Don't Know' is the perfect showcase for her remarkable gifts, pulling back to give a stark spotlight to her stunning voice before surging forth with a rollicking live band feel. Fans of Marling's previous recordings will recognize her mesmeric tales and soaring melodies in what is ultimately an incredibly intimate album.
