  • ‘London Town’ - Laura Marling (2008)

    ‘How's it back in London Town, Where you let me down?’

    ‘I know she came to save you, but she knocked my drink over too.’ London isn’t just about big themes, high drama and comically oversized felt Union flag top hats. One of its most consuming qualities is the knowledge that it’s home to almost eight million small and very human stories. Marling’s beautifully observed dissection of romance gone awry is one of the better ones, thanks to couplets such as ‘It's all the bad things, I wish I hadn't done/I know you're all about the dancing but I just don't find it fun.’
