So, for all the press and general pre-empting of imminent success, Marina & The Diamonds debut album, The Family Jewels, has yet to really capture the imagination of the general public. All in all, this is a bit of a shame because when it works, it’s a fairly spectacular debut album packed with huge-mongous choruses and melodies that practically fight their way to the forefront to be heard. When it doesn’t work, it’s a bit too jazz hands at ten paces even for these ears.
But, it’s not in Marina’s nature to give up, so here’s the video for another single, ‘Shampain’, and it’s basically an M&S underwear ad filmed using alcoholic models with a Michael Jackson fetish. Or something.
TRUE FACT: Marina is dating Theo from Hurts. Like, for serious.
