Its quite nice listening to something for the first time and absolutely falling in love. Case in point with Marina and the Diamonds.
On first listen, Marina who is of Greek and Welch decent is obviously influenced by Kate Bush but has somewhere along the way found her own sound. Her stuff is absolutely incredible.
Marina and the Diamonds - Obsessions
She's got a couple of dates in the UK coming up and a single coming out on Neon Gold Records on February 16, 2009.
Marina and the Diamonds tour dates:
January 14 - Hoxton Bar and Grill
February 14 - TBA (single release party at a secret location)
