Sleepless, lonely Laura Marling paints a bleak picture: Women go crazy, her neighbors beg for help through the walls and she hears animals dying — it's like a folk-rock Walking Dead, right down to the chilling strings that swell around the song. By the time she reaches the final verse, she asks, "Is it still okay that I don’t know how to be at all?" But even if the world is crashing down around her, Marling can at least take some comfort in the fact that she has the sweetest singing voice in the whole apocalypse.
