Darkness Descends

Album: I Speak Because I Can (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Marling told The NME January 16, 2010 that this optimistic number provoked one of the few arguments between her and producer Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon). She said: "I was in a battle with Ethan to keep it plain and simple but he was like, 'No you've got to put a beat on it. So there's quite prominent drums all the way through it and a bit more sunshine than I would have done, but I like how it's come out-it's fun."
