The pretty folk pop of Laura Marling is set to take the world by storm, and she’s not even old enough to buy a pint. But it’s not about the age. “Age is just a gimmick. They don’t realise that I’ve had to grow up shit loads in the last few years,” she says as she takes a break from her busy schedule, playing around the country and supporting The Maccabees. It’s old hat to 17-year-old Marling, who’s already opened for Rufus Wainwright. “I was terrified. He would be standing right next to me, but I was too scared to talk to him.” It shows the innocence pouring out of her new and second EP, ‘My Manic & I’ – a collection of four songs which trounces all over her teen contemporaries making waves in the indie scene.
