Marina and the Diamonds - Starring Role - Acoustic

It’s no secret that I wasn’t a huge fan of Marina and the Diamonds’ “Primadona”. I still think that song sounds too similar to Katy Perry’s songs — but it has grown on me, and I even bought the single on iTunes.

Marina is winning me over some more with the acoustic versions of some of the songs from her upcoming album Elektra Heart. The latest, “Starring Role”, is beautiful and haunting. Marina’s vocals shine when the production is minimized and she’s not trying to be someone else. I really hope that her album has more stuff like this.

Also, something about the video is very ethereal. I’m slowly becoming a fan!
