The final part of a trilogy of videos directed by Laura Marling for tracks for her new album Semper Femina, is another dance piece featuring the choreography of Alexandra Green.

The piece accompanying the hypnotic The Valley is also very much the flipside of the second part in the trilogy. Here the focus is on the woman on the beach, swathed in flowing blue robes - the object of desire for the tormented woman in the sunlit bedroom in the video for Next Time.

This time the action leading to their eventual reunion is extended through the choreography, and the editing, for maximum dramatic effect, which makes their final embrace all the more emotionally satisfying.

Suffice to say that having completed this beautiful piece of music - in fact the whole of Semper Femina is wonderful - Marling has now directed a compelling, conceptually rigourous trio of videos which shows she has a real talent as a visual as well as a musical artist.
