Crisp N' Fresh: 'Oh No!' Look Out For Marina!

Monday, June 28, 2010

Every time I listen to Marina & Diamonds' The Family Jewels, I find something new to like about it. It's just a solid pop record that should already have invaded your ears by now. If need a little more persuasion, then peep the video for Marina's latest single, "Oh No!". Talk about ripping opening packets of Kool-Aid and spreading out the crystal sugars of Pixie Stixs, the "Oh No!" video is a punch of color power and cartoon kitsch where Marina bops around, dances, is her ever endearing self. It's pretty much what you want from a pop video, and since "Oh No!" is such a slice of brilliant bubble pop electric, every visual and costume change works. It's sort of the quirky psychedelica of  Dee-Lite, mixed with Betty Boo Jetsons' and go-go boots homages in a way and it is highly watchable, especially for the hand jive dance Marina displays...note to self to do that every time I hear the song.
