Secret Sounds is thrilled to announce that UK folk artist Laura Marling will be back in Australia this June, armed with a new album to add to her already formidable repertoire.
Performing in Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide, Laura’s return tour will also include an (already announced) special performance at the Sydney Opera House as part of the highly coveted Vivid LIVE 2017 contemporary music program, which for its ninth year, features yet again an unrivalled line-up of international talent.
Known for her raw and emotive lyrics, Laura’s sixth studio album ‘Semper Femina’ is a personal and very topical observation of how society views sexuality and gender.
Written on the road, following the release of her acclaimed album, ‘Short Movie’, in Spring 2015, ‘Semper Femina’s’ loose lyrical thread strings together Laura’s keen, freshly observed take on womanhood, and what she describes as a particularly ‘masculine time in her life’. It is an expression of her own voyage of self-discovery, both personally and as an artist over the course of her career.
‘Semper Femina’ follows Laura’s recent Podcast series ‘Reversal of the Muse<http://www.reversalofthemuse.com/>’ that looked at gender influence in the recording studio environment and featured guests such as HAIM, Karen Elson, Vanessa Parr, Dolly Parton, Shura, and Emmylou Harris.
Undoubtedly one of the most intriguing, talented and prolific young musicians of her generation, Laura Marling has just played a run of sold out dates across the UK and will tour across the US and Canada before she plays this very special run of dates for Australian fans this June.
Tickets to Laura’s Vivid show at the Sydney Opera House are flying out the door and her other dates are sure to follow suit!
This is an 18+ event.
