Born in Abergavenny, United Kingdom Marina Diamandis decided early on to pursue a career in music. After dropping four different music courses at four different universities, she proceeded to create her career on her own. After her first single, “Obsessions/Mowgli’s Road,” was released, The Crown Jewels EP, which contained three new songs, including a remix of “I Am Not a Robot,” Diamandis dedicated much of her time to touring the British festival circuit and creating her debut album, Family Jewels (released in 2010).
Known for her “larger than life” voice and retro pop songs, Marina Diamandis’ new album, Froot takes a a propulsive fusion of electro-pop and new wave vibes to create a cathartic and compelling harmonies. Choosing to co-produce the album with David Kosten (Brooke Fraser, Bat for Lashes) and write all the songs herself has done nothing but create memorable electro-pop hooks demonstrative of her maturation, as an artist.
Her recent takeover of Lollapalooza 2015, pictured above, accompanied by artists like Sam Smith and Florence + The Machine shows just how her remarkable style is growing.
As an ode to finding happiness in the most unlikely places, her third album is sure to give the perfect vibe to start the week off right.
