Marina and the Diamonds

Just another female singer in the midst of Lykke Li and Laura Marling? Oh no. There is a ferociousness that accompanies Marina's cutting insights on modern life seethe through the sweetness in her voice.
"Obsessions" is a piano driven and haunting affair which evokes simple, maudlin musings which contrasts greatly to "Seventeen" which matches staccato beats and Kate Bush inspired vocals with a feisty air thumping chorus. The sweetness of Yael Naim with the force of Karen O's personality seeps through.
"Mowgli's Road" gathers in it's arms a bundle of ideas and throws them in the air- the end result falls into a mish-mash of piano, vocal and thumping drums creating a seriously interesting sound. Added to this heartfelt lyrics and a set of powerful lungs and your there.

It is subtlety which is intoxicating.
