CD Review: Marina And The Diamonds Performs With Her "Heart"
Welsh singer/songwriter Marina Diamonds is better known by her stage name Marina and the Diamonds. After her 2010 debut album “The Family Jewels” failed to make a dent on the U.S. chart, Marina made sure her follow-up; “Electra Heart” would make a bigger impact.” Led by the singles “Primadonna” and “How To Be A Heartbreaker,” the new album debuted at #1 on the UK Charts and hit #31 on the US Billboard Album chart.
The new album fits in perfectly with today’s “top 40” music scene. Her songs “Home-wrecker” and “Power & Control” should be dance floor staples alongside Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, while “Teen Idle” shows a gentler side to her music. The fourteen song album closes with the bubblegum, dance pop of “Radioactive” and the six-minute, passionate sounding “Fear & Loathing.”
Marina and the Diamonds is currently on tour supporting Coldplay before heading her own tour in Europe beginning in October. For more information on this rising artist, please visit marinaandthediamonds.com.
