Edgy Dance Pop – Marina and the Diamonds Releases Electra Heart

Marina and the Diamonds have just released “Electra Heart” in the U.S., which has previously been in the top of the charts in the U.K. Not sure why the U.K. gets these early releases and the U.S. is so cautious about upcoming new pop trends. This also happened with Ellie Goulding and her album which was popular in Europe and finally trickled into American radio here with “Lights”.

Marina and the Diamonds is a refresher from Lady Gaga. If you’re looking for edgy, dance pop, Marina is your girl. “Homewrecker” is on the top of my list, with Ace of Base beats and lyrics that are so true, it hurts. “Power & Control” is fun too, along with “Radioactive”. Her voice is full of soul, and I’d love to see a sing off with her and Lady Gaga. Although, I’ve heard rumors that her live performance is “forced”, which, with these pop personalities should be considered, her music is undeniably catchy and very popular in the indie scene. Will Marina and the Diamonds hit the mainstream American radio soon? Tough to tell when the edgy pop Queen, Lady Gaga retains the throne, but I’d love to see a face off between these two divas and who can be more shocking, lyrically and visually.

  1. I like her cover!
    Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…
