Marina and the Diamonds
Seeing as she’s already gotten a lot of attention, it wouldn’t be pretentious enough to blog about Marina and the Diamonds, so I’m going to wait until April 30th, the release of her album “Electra Heart” to do so.
But here’s a video of her song “Primadonna,” to tide you over before the wave of patent, Pretentioustan exhibitionism.
But to prepare you, I’ll talk a little bit about this song.
I think it really captures the best of her album “The Family Jewels,” and progresses into very marketable pop, but in a good way. It’s got the progression of “I am Not a Robot,” the grit of “Mowgli’s Road,” and the attitude of “Obsessions.” But let’s hope her next album is as varied as her previous one. Though, with the song “Lies,” I doubt we’ll be hoping in vain.
Pretentioustan does not hope in vain.
