Marina and the Diamonds: Electra Heart

She describes herself as the “anti-Adele” but Marina Lambrini Diamandis, who performs under the name Marina and the Diamonds, has just as much soul.

She describes herself as the “anti-Adele” but Marina Lambrini Diamandis, who performs under the name Marina and the Diamonds, has just as much soul – it’s just buried beneath a few poppy beats. She received criticism overseas for this album, her second, which saw her transform from an arty singer-songwriter into a full-blown pop princess, however she hasn’t lost her backbone. Primadonna was an instant hit, but Bubblegum Bitch and Starring Role are delights.
