Marina and the DiamondsHollywood

If there’s one thing any mainstream pop blockbuster needs, it’s a chorus that sweeps away all thoughts of reality, inspiring only positivity, excitement and maybe a little bit of sweat.

It’s what seperated the likes of Florence and La Roux from Little Boots in 2009, and Marina and her Diamonds look set to take on the next leg of female fronted power pop reliant on that central hook, simple in structure but dynamic in its execution.

There’s a cynicism too shared with The Ting Tings’ Katie White (though without the silly indie girl annoyance) making verses crackle with a confidence of someone who wants this pop world for their own. One for the A-list.
