On the 2010 BBC Sound of 2010 list Marina and the Diamonds ended up second only to Ellie Goulding. Soon the buzz was abound about this pop act. To keep the buzz going she followed up her 2010 debut album with 2012’s Electra Heart. Electra Heart featured the smash hit “Primadonna” which was on the radio a lot over the winter.
Though she is a pop act it is hard to pin down the Marina’s sound. Her songs range from ballads to up tempo New Wavish songs. Marina’s cited influences include the likes of Blondie, Kylie Minogue, Hole, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, and Garbage.
