Laura Marling set for Australian return this October!

Laura Marling is an artist I think everyone should have the opportunity to see perform live at least once. At only 25 years of age, the British folk artist has five albums under her belt, each demonstrating her incredible talent as lyricist and as a riveting musician. Her latest album Short Movie saw Marling head in a noticeably different direction musically, embracing a larger and certainly more electric feel. Still, she hit it on the head, with the record instantly landing to critical acclaim upon its release in March. October will see Marling make her return to Australia with her full band, ready to bring her new material (plus cuts from the rest of her catalogue) to life in some great rooms around the country. We can't wait.

The dates will take Madonna to New Zealand as well for the first time but for many Australian Madonna fans this one has been a while in the making - try for 23 years.
