“It stays true to her arty pop sound but the gloriously morose break-up anthem (“we’ve broken up and now I regret it”) packs the catchiest chorus on her third LP and wouldn’t sound out of place on top 40 radio.

IDOLATOR

 

“A breakup anthem dressed up as a bubbly dance jam, you’ll be bopping along before you realize that she’s singing about heartbreak… It’s classic Marina at her best, serving up brutally honest self-awareness in a Froot-flavored candy shell.”

- POPCRUSH

 

Neon Gold/Elektra recording artist Marina And The Diamonds has released the much anticipated video for “Blue,” from her acclaimed album FROOT. Directed by Charlotte Rutherford,  the video was filmed at “Dreamland” Pleasure Park in the UK, amongst a host of stylishly restored rides.  FUSE predicts that “Blue,” “may be her breakout pop moment,” adding the video “could catapult the star to landing a sizable hit.”

 

Currently featured on the cover of NYLON’s annual music issue, the magazine declares “Froot” as “the sound of feminism,” while Entertainment Weekly also recently named the collection among their “12 Best Albums of 2015 (So Far),” naming it the year’s “Best-Kept Pop Secret” while praising Marina Diamandis for “(building) her best Trojan horse yet: an irresistible collection of spangly pop gems packed with smart-girl poetry.” “FROOT” made a stunning a top 10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its March 2015 release – Marina’s highest chart placement and top overall sales week to date.

 

This year, Marina has already performed at various U.S. headline dates and festival appearances including Coachella, Boston Calling Music Festival, Sweetlife, and New York City’s Governors Ball.  This Fall she will bring her NEON NATURE TOUR to the United States, kicking off October 12 in Houston, TX (dates below)
