If your life were a film it would be?
Probably Labyrinth. It's got some classic songs in it, it’s all a bit weird but funny, and that dog running over the farting rocks gets me every time.
A song that makes your heart skip a beat?
Ahhhh so many! ‘The Lark Ascending’ by Vaughan Williams is such a beautiful piece of music it makes me want to cry, mainly because I didn't write it... ‘Whenever Dreams’ by Fleetwood Mac comes on it makes me feel really content, it’s got some great memories attached.
If the world were coming to an end and you were allowed one last kiss, who would be lucky enough to land on your lips?
That is top secret information, second place goes to my deerhound Margot though, she has very kissable lips.
Which item of clothing in your closet gets most wear and why?
My lucky pants, i have to wear them at all gigs and seeing as I'm getting busier they're getting much more wear. For any pessimists they do actually work, I failed my driving test when I wasn't wearing them...
A guilty pleasure of yours that you can't seem to quit?
I don't really feel guilty about any of my pleasures, maybe the odd sneaky McDonalds, and the fact that I own and have read all of Jilly Cooper's books, but I feel more guilty that I don't feel guilty about that.
Marika will release her double A-side single You Come Down/Mountain Spines on 3rd September.
