Love Is 'E.V.O.L' According To Marina & The Diamonds

Monday, February 18, 2013

Adding to the soundtrack of Singles Awareness Day Valentine's Day, out of nowhere (and pleasantly so),Marina & The Diamonds releases another ode to romance and all of its lovely and grimy corners.

Ms. Diamandis always has something to say about romance (as well as a witty as hell Twitter), so this time she spells 'love' backwards, tells Cupid to kick rocks, and transports us into a thumping synth shockwave that features great zinger lines like: "It only takes two lonely people, to fuck love up and make it evil". My, my, my, what truth that weaves... Also good look for plugging in one of the best quotes from Willy Wonka ("candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker"). Niiice. 

Biting and frothy good (as well as free of charge below),"EVOL" is one of the ones that shouldn't have gotten away during the Electra Heart sessions. And since we're talking about Electra Heart, I wouldn't mind one bit if that album was released with even more cutting room floor tracks tacked on as Marina woke up on the right side of the bed when she made that album.
