Video of the Moment #1858: Marina and the Diamonds

Marina and the Diamonds has a new video out for her song ‘Blue’, appearing on her third album ‘FROOT’, which has already received media accolades such as placing on American culture magazine Entertainment Weekly’s ’12 Best Albums for 2015 (So Far)’. Filmed at Margate’s Dreamland amusement park in Kent, Diamandis smartly uses the multicoloured atmosphere and exhilarating rides to parallel the upbeat, sparkly tune. Watch the video below.

‘FROOT’ is out now on Atlantic Records. For all past articles on the fabulous Marina, go here.

(SXSW 2015 flavoured!) Live Gig Video: Marina and the Diamonds perform acoustic ‘I’m a Ruin’ from upcoming LP

Marina Diamandis has been dangling the carrot at us ever since the Marina and the Diamonds‘ next album, ‘FROOT’, was announced late last year. Following in the footsteps of the acoustic video for ‘Happy’, Marina and co. have now released another acoustic video, this time for ‘I’m a Ruin’.

Ahead of the release of ‘FROOT’ on the 6th of April, Marina and the Diamonds will be making a high-profile appearance at SXSW 2015 in mid-March.

Ahead of the release of her third album ‘FROOT’, Marina Diamandis – who goes by the glossy stage name Marina and the Diamonds – has released another new song from the upcoming album on 679 Artists and Atlantic Records. ‘Immortal’ follows the previous reveals of title track ‘FROOT’ in November and ‘Happy’ (in acoustic form) in December.

In this promo, Diamandis frolics and emotes (she was Lana Del Rey before Lana Del Rey was Lana Del Rey) in front of a screen on which old, grainy footage from days and celebrations gone by are projected on. Watch it below.

Past coverage of Marina’s musical shenanigans on TGTF is over here.

The first was the title track, whose promo video was revealed in November (see our previous Video of the Moment for it). Now second track ‘Happy’ has been unveiled, coming to us in acoustic form. Watch it below.

Video of the Moment #1675: Marina and the Diamonds

 
By on Wednesday, 12th November 2014 at 6:00 pm
 

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Marina Diamandis, better known by her stage name Marina and the Diamonds. Following on from her 2010 debut ‘The Family Jewels’ and 2012’s ‘Electra Heart’, she’s announced her third album ‘Froot’ will be released in April 2015 on 679 Artists and Atlantic Records.

We’re led to believe the title track has nothing to do with the breakfast cereal that bears its name, though why the misspelling? Guess we’ll have to wait until next year to find out. In the meantime, Diamandis has released the promo video for the song, starring herself vamping it up ala Marilyn Monroe while showing off her trademark low-register drawl. Watch it below.
