The Daily Mail was all over it a few days ago but you may recall, Carey and Jake Gyllenhaal were seen at a party in Nashville where the band played.And then there were sightings of the two of them, Carey and Marcus I mean, in Cork, Ireland, at local bars – she’s been on tour with them I guess.UK singer-songwriter Laura Marling and Charlie Fink were dating; now they aren't-- and she's also out of the band-- and Fink's Noah and the Whale made a record about it.(A movie, too, but we're not that voyeuristic.) predicted this change in tone from slick, slaphappy twee to mostly somber, stripped-down folk.
Her friend owns the top flat and recently let out her spare room to Marling for the rare periods that she's not on tour (before that, she was sleeping on a friend's sofa).All these tunes consisting of little more than splashes of piano and guitar, a little percussion clatter, and Fink's front-and-center vocals are quite some change from the whirlygiggery that made Peaceful so tiring."My Broken Heart" has a rangy Neil Youngish quality to it that stands a bit above the din around the rest of the album, but like its predecessors, it doesn't offer too much but platitudes-- "broken hearts are a fickle thing and complicated, too," or, "I need your light in my life, need your light," that sort of thing.Her father, Sir Charles William Somerset Marling, the 5th Marling Baronet, ran a recording studio, introduced her to folk music and shaped her musical taste, She soon joined a cluster of intertwined bands that were drawn to acoustic instruments and tradition-tinged melodies—the group formed a musical movement that was labelled "nu-folk" by the British press.and appears as a background vocalist on their debut album Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down; however, she left the group before the album's 2008 release due to a dissolved relationship with the band's lead singer, Charlie Fink.
