I read an album review of the debut album of Marina & The Diamonds 4 days ago and it said it is the missing link between Lady Gaga on the one hand and Tori & Kate on the other hand. Amos and Bush I assumed
So I downloaded the album The Family Jewels and her EP The Crown Jewels. And I was really surprised about how great it all turned out to be. She had released some singles before (I Am Not A Robot, Mowgli's Road, Obsessions and her latest single Hollywood), which you all should check them out on YouTube or on her own website www.marinaandthediamonds.com
But the album has a lot more great songs ("Girls" is my favourite popsong on it, alongside another fantastic song called "Hermit The Frog").
A little strange that this singer is still unknown in Holland.
You should! It makes me really happy and sunny. Great great music. She should do some big festivals and not only tour the little venues (well, in June she will be playing Paradiso in Holland!! Big artists even released official live-cd's/dvd's recorded in Paradiso, Amsterdam).
I guess you're a lucky girl with a ticket to see Marina! I hope there will be a second Dutch show right after het Amsterdam-show.
By the way Mina, have you heard the Crown Jewels EP yet, with a great remix ánd acoustic version of I Am Not A Robot, plus a great song called Seventeen.
And there are some really great remixes around these days. Esp. the Aspirin's For My Children Remix of I Am No A Robot (the beginning of the song could even be Tori!!). Other fine remixes can be found here: rcrdlbl.com/search/marina+diamonds
