If you live in the UK then you are well aware of this next artist. The United States has yet to embrace her but I have a feeling with her latest release, she’s about to hit it big in the States. Her real name is Marina Diamandis and is originally from Wales until she moved to the UK at the age of 18. Her first album “The Family Jewels” introduced her opera like voice and lyrics that put most songwriters to shame. The album debuted in the UK at #5 after which she embarked on her first solo tour. 2 years later, she has now released her sophomore effort “Electra Heart”. Switching things up this time around, Marina went for a more mainstream sound all while staying true to herself. The buzz single (posted above) “Radioactive” shows a now blonde Marina singing with her signature vocals to a Stargate produced track. The album is not all dance/pop but instead gives the best of both worlds, allowing Marina to stay current but true to herself. The official first single “Primadonna” is produced by none other then Dr. Luke (who also produced the track “Lies”). The entire album is lyrically genius and her vocals along with the production, make it the most exciting pop album out so far this year. The album “Electra Heart” just debuted #1 in the UK and will be available for release in the United States in July.
Key tracks on the album: Bubblegum Bitch, Teen Idle, Power & Control, Lies, Starring Role, and the bonus tracks Radioactive and Sex Yeah.
"Primadonna" is now available on iTunes worldwide.
