Audio Vision: Less Is More When 'Primadonna' Goes Acoustic
Monday, March 19, 2012
Has it been a sluggish crawl for you guys as it has been for me? Since last week I've been feeling like the Walking Dead; things have been going at a sloth's pace lately and I'm hoping things will pick up---in a good way. Then again a little leisure time never hurt anyone. Just ask Marina Diamandis aka Marina & The Diamonds as she calms done the kinetics and wild theatrics of her newest single, "Primadonna" and gives us an acoustic version of it, with video in tow.
Personally, this version is superior to the original. It's a 'less is more' scenerio and it works. Somehow I get a bit enchanted over Marina's unconventional vocals. Her voice just has a lot of character to it, and it gets a chance to come up from beneath the spunky electronic beats and really play around. Dig on the song, dig on the vibe, and dig on those nails.
Bit-by-bit, I'm getting very excited about Electra Heart as I'm just digging what has been put out so far. More please!
