Marina Diamandis, better known under her stage name Marina and the Diamonds is on a high. Not only has her recent single ”Primadonna” achieved its best result in the charts since the singer came to the surface of the pop industry , her new album ”Electra Heart” is also one of the most anticipated and successful albums of 2012 so far, with several international releases still ahead.
The Welsh singer revealed during the release that ”Power & Control” would be the successor of ”Primadonna” and released today the video for the track as ”Part 6: Power & Control”. The new track kicks of with a haunting intro before it bursts into a nicely moist mixture of synthesizers and beats wrapped up in a nice pop jacket. Quite culinary there for a minute.
Marina is also delivering one of the best lyrics of the year by singing ” You may be good looking but you’re not a piece of art” so go start facebooking or twittering that one ladies and gentlemen…
The video sees the singer in a classy out black dress, playing some tricks on a rather hunky model. Clearly it’s all about Power & Control, which makes the video rather cliche but take the video away you still end up with a cracker of a tune, which has all the ingredients to become one of the most played hits this summer and hopefully gets Marina finally to that number 1 spot.
”Power & Control” is released on July 9 as separate single, the album version can already be bought through the album ”Electra Heart” via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify.
