Bite Into Marina & The Diamonds' 'Froot'

Friday, October 10, 2014

When I celebrated my birthday last month, I just got a Dr. Pepper cake (and it was delicious), but when Marina & The Diamonds (aka Marina Diamandis; aka the best friend in my head) celebrates a birthday, she releases a brand new song. Apples and oranges, yes, but Marina is cooler than I am, so there you go.

Speaking of apples and oranges, Marina's latest song is called "Froot", a disco-dizzy affair that recalls the hypnotic lure of '70s Donna Summer, and the chug-a-lug electronica know-how of Little Boots, to create one juicy nocturnal stomper. Co-produced by David Kosten and ripe with flirty word play, "Froot" is the first inkling of Marina's upcoming new album that is slated to make an appearance next year. She's already off to a great start as "Froot" is wildly good, but it's going to be hard to top the brilliance that was 2012's Electra Heart so there is that.  

Funny. I was listening to The Family Jewels just yesterday, and was reminded of how grand "I Am Not A Robot" is, and why everywhere I go, "Shampain" needs to played in the background at high volumes. Just a side note, carry on...
