Marina and the Diamonds

23Jan10

I’ve been totally in love with Marina and the Diamonds ever since I first heard this song, ‘Mowgli’s Road‘ on Radio 1 a few months back. It has a very surreal Kate Bush feel to it, with an equally quirky video to match. There’s just something fab about Marina, she’s often compared to Florence and the Machine but true fans will know she has been around longer and although the band names bear similarities Marina’s surname is Diamandis (she’s part Welsh, part Greek). I’m lucky to have already seen her live before she hit the ‘big’ time, as her recent London dates have been a sell out but i’m desperate to go again. Her latest single ‘Hollywood‘ is super catchy piece of pop, but make sure you also listen to her back catalogue; ‘I am not a Robot’ is another fave, this has a Kate Nash feel to it and there are enough remixes of it knocking around to impress dance fans too. She’s gorgeous in an unconventional way, very talented and very, very cool.
