Marina And The Diamonds Electra Heart
Release Date: July 10, 2012
Electra Heart, is not so much a creative leap forward, more an Olympian pole-vault over the bar of talented-newcomer into the global amphitheater of a cultivated classic.
The self-styled avant-garde D.I.Y. artist has detonated her own experimental past and landed feet first in the future with Electra Heart, a stunningly ambitious, cohesive and confident sonic pulsar spinning between electro-pop euphoria and come-down melancholia. A hook-packed stunner with the sonic ambition of a one-woman Depeche Mode, her onetime theatrical vocals now effortlessly soar between spectral, commanding and towering power-pop, finding her vocal identity in an album about a loss of it.
