It appears that Charlie Fink may not be over Laura Marling just yet. After Noah And The Whale’s fun fun fun debut, Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down, the two folk rockers split up, prompting Fink to devote the band’s entire sophomore effort to the breakup, producing a completely different sound, save for Fink’s melodramatic baritone. Now, the group has dropped the first official single from next year’s Last Night On Earth, after debuting “L.O.V.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.” on Zane Lowe’s radio show last week. “Wild Thing,” continues where The First Days of Spring ends, a heartfelt, soft pop rock ballad whose gradual buildup brings “Blue Skies” to mind. Synths and faint electronic sounds cascade as Fink sings “Baby, she’s a wild thing.” Last Night On Earth comes out in March 2011.
