Music: Marina and the Diamonds


This one may not be for most dudes but if you like a little lady sass, this could be for you. Marina released her album a few months ago and I bought tickets to see her live in Houston next month and I am pretty stoked. She is definitely a punky pop princess with depth that I am not ashamed of actually admitting to adoring. Minor girl crush? I think so.

With songs like Bubblegum Bitch, Homewrecker and Sex Yeah you know are in for a spicy treat. This Whales resident is like a talented and Greek version of Katy Perry and a softer Gwen Stefani, a less creepy 90’s Madonna with straight forward lyrics of Lily Allen. Was that too much?

Marina’s songs are uber catchy, here are my favs: Primadonna, Lies and Starring Role, How to be a Heartbreaker…ok basically all of them.  Definitely the album you want to be listening to during your singledom.

Her most known song and with over 19 mil views, it’s a must listen:


And this is the acoustic and equally awesome version of her ballad ‘Lies’. It’s one of those ‘dammit-I-can’t-believe-I-dated-such-a-douche-and-she-totally-gets-me’ songs.

You’re too proud to say that you’ve made a mistake
You’re a coward to the end
I don’t wanna admit, but we’re not gonna fit
No, I’m not the type that you like


She’s a unique one and I will let you guys know how she is live. Also you have homework kiddos, listen:

Paul Banks-The Base  (He’s the dude from Interpol and big thanks to my friend Nick for sending it my way.)

Snark ya later friends.
