Divas and diamonds

Indie Artist, Marina and The Diamonds sasses up her listeners with the latest single “Primadonna.” The song is off of her 2012 album Electra Heart, which features many other fun and fearless tracks including “Teen Idle” and “Lies.” Marina’s style continues to have unique and quirky aspects, but also remains serious and poetic. In “Primadonna” her deep alto voice expresses the typical prima donna girl. She sings, “‘Cause I’m a prima donna girl, yeah/ All I ever wanted was the world.” Marina states that her album portrays a character that is based off of e concept of the corrupt side of  American themes and dreams. This can be seen through the negative aspects of her songs, especially in “Primadonna.” In another lyrics she explains, “You can count on me to misbehave!” The young artist continues to entertain her audience with the ideas that she puts into her music. The variety of instrumentation also makes for individual tracks that will not bore listeners. She is currently joining Coldplay on their Mylo Xyloto Tour.
