Film: Laura Marling's amazingly creepy new video for Devil's Resting Place

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Perfectly sinister and atmospheric new video here from the beautiful song-machine that is Laura Marling. A lot of her past videos have tried and failed to capture her ethereal nature and songwriting capabilities through the medium of film – in part because she used to refuse to be in the videos until Rambling Man. It seems Laura’s retreated back into her Los Angeles shell and left the directors to their own devices once more, but the results are rather spectacular. In a dark, short film set in the grounds of a terrifying abandoned hotel we are beckoned into a menacing love story that is a contemporary dance version of Tess of the d’Urbervillles with a lot more slow-mo. Perfect.
