Meet Marina & The Diamonds, another incredible hot new talent you should be looking out for in 2009. The group will be hitting the scene around Valentine's Day with their totally brilliant debut single "Obsessions," which is a milli-inch away from being a perfect pop song. It's so good that that gives me chills everytime I play it.
Produced by Liam Howe, the song is an impressive slice of slice of melodic, orchestral pop that prominently features Marina's distinct vocals that will remind some of you of Kate Bush and Tori Amos. "We’ve got obsessions, I want to erase every nasty thought that bugs me every day of every week" Marina shares with us in her warm, dark timbre in the chorus of the song. The release of "Obsessions" will be accompanied by a lovely read-for-music-television video that was directed by Tim Brown
After people like Lykke Li and Robyn paved the way for indie, left-field pop stars to emerge in 2008, Marina will carry the torch for exciting new pop music in 2009.
