Star singer-songwriter Laura Marling has cut deeper into her gasp-worthy 5th studio album Short Movie with a music video for new single, Gurdjieff’s Daughter.
To give you a bit of background, Gurdjieff was an influential spiritual teacher of the early to mid-20th century. He famously philosophised that most humans live their lives in a state of “waking sleep”, but believed that it was possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness.
The quirky clip for Gurdjieff’s Daughter was filmed at Marling’s house in East LA, and is packed with cameos from other musicians she met while recording her new album the City of Angels, including Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, American producer Jonathan Wilson, and British singer/songwriter Marika Hackman.
Marling, a three-time Mercury Prize nominee, was last in Australia for Splendour In The Grass 2013. Her new album, Short Movie, which Music Feeds has dubbed “her finest record to date” in a rave review, is out now.
