She may be new to the GlobalGrind stage, but Marina and the Diamonds has been putting in work!
The UK singer-songwriter is leaving footprints all over the music game, and has already dropped three solid music projects – The Crown Jewels EP, The Family Jewels and The American Jewels.
Her stage name, created in 2005, is derived from her actual Greek surname “Diamandis,” and is oftentimes used to refer to her adoring fans.
Marina has been making steady strides in the business. Not only has she been dropping stellar projects, she also ranked #2 on the 2010 BBC Sound of Music Poll – an annual poll of new and promising talent endorsed by music industry critics.
The same year, she performed on the revered Glastonbury Festival stage and grabbed a few notable trophies for her hard work, including a BRIT Award and MTV European Music Award.
Since then, she’s joined forces with some of music’s biggest names, including Diplo, Dr. Luke and Stargate. She performed as the opening act for Katy Perry’s California Dreams tour and has already been booked to open for Coldplay during their Mylo Xyloto European tour.
Her newest project Electra Heart is slated to hit the shelves later this year in April. But for now click below and watch the video to her premiere single “Primadonna”!
