Published Mar 12, 2015British songwriter Laura Marling is branching out with her new album Short Movie. While some tracks sport an electric sound, her newly unveiled "Strange" showcases a unique half-spoken vocal delivery.
The song is anchored by a brisk acoustic strums and pitter-pattering percussion, while Marling delivers poetry in drawling sing-speak. She shifts into her usual register at a couple points, but the vibe here is closer to that of a Beat poet than a typical singer-songwriter.

Short Movie drops on March 24 through Ribbon Music/Virgin EMI.
