Marina and the Diamonds has been on my "to blog about" list for a couple of months now. The indie-blog circuit is notorious for burning out on bands in less time than that, but the buzz on Marina is still fresh, and still growing.
The UK chanteuse's debut single 'Obsessions' was released on Valentine's Day. The song sprouts from a heartfelt, little piano ballad into a full-fledged dance track in only 3.5 minutes.
This single's been in my rotation enough lately that you could likely say I have developed a bit of my own "obsession."
Besides, doesn't she seem rather adorable? Just watch the video below:
