Have you heard of Marina and the Diamonds? Maybe not. Well, to start Marina is a famous Welsh singer who sings music that varies from keyboard ballads to newer-sounding New Wave songs. So are the “Diamonds” her band or something? No. It’s just her. It’s a common misconception. As Marina has said herself, “I’m Marina. You are the diamonds.”
So how did I stumble upon Marina? I give credit to one of my favorite YouTube vloggers, Joey Graceffa. He recently did a video where he talked about his “favorite things” for the month, and this song was his pick for the past month.
I took a listen. The first time, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t crazy about it, but something made me hit repeat. Soon I realized that it was the only song I had listened to for the past 10 minutes or so.
Then I bought it on iTunes and added it to my playlists.
Take a listen for yourself! It sounds classy yet new. Definitely catchy.
