The artist I choose for this week is: Marina & The Diamonds.
I discovered Marina & The Diamonds a little over a month ago. As usual, it happened when I was searching for new artists on Last.fm. The first song I heard of hers was “Girls”, and as much as I thought it was catchy, I also thought it would be a song I would get bored of after one or two listens. I was right. For a little while, anyway. Because a little after that, I downloaded some of her other songs, and God, it took some time, but I was finally strongly addicted to her and her music. Marina’s songs have such a strong effect on me, they always seem to cheer me up. A month ago, I had no idea who she was, and now she’s #9 on my charts, and I have no doubt that she will keep on rising. She’s bound to, since all I listen to is her.
Marina’s music can be best described as quirky. The catchy beats and thought-provoking lyrics will have you jumping up and singing along in no time. Her voice is deep, beautiful and undeniably unique. It will be very easy to fall in love with her, and then her music will be all you crave to hear.
My favourite songs of hers are: “Obsessions”, “Mowgli’s Road”, and “I Am Not A Robot”. And the lyrics I love the most are as follows:
Look like a girl but I think like a guy
Not ladylike to behave like a slime
Easy to be sleazy when you’ve got a filthy mind
You stick to your yoghurts
I’ll stick to my apple pie
Sunday, wake up, give me a cigarette.
Last night�s love affair is looking vulnerable in my bed
Silk sheet, blue dawn, Colgate, tongue warm
Won�t you quit your crying? I can�t sleep
One minute I�m a little sweetheart
And next minute you are an absolute creep
You’re vulnerable, you’re vulnerable
You are not a robot
You’re loveable, so loveable
But you’re just troubled
From “I Am Not A Robot”
I’ll have to admit that I have an unhealthy obsession and a huge crush on her :P When you give her music a listen, you’ll know why!
I was glad to find her actual video clips on Youtube. Everything about them is amazing. Enjoy!
