Marina & The Diamonds' Humor Not For Brits??

Is Marina & The Diamonds a little TOO heart-cheeky for our brothers (and sisters) from another English mother?!

It seems that the bands main heartbreaker, Mz. Marina Diamandis herself, recently shared how she thinks her latest album Electra Heart's mixed UK reception is partly due to Brits not getting its humorous edge! Which is pretty HIGHlarious in itself, seeing as Marina is Welsh!

Marina recently expressed:

"It's been so instant that I've come over [to America] and sold out my tour and I've never really done that before. People are getting the humor. It's such a relief to be here for six weeks because it feels effortless. When I first changed [musical direction] people [in England] said, 'She's sold out' and they totally didn't get the humor. It's a tongue-in-cheek record but it also deals with the truth about love and commercialism and just being a young person, really."

Ah well, we're sure they'll come around, oh sparkliest of diamonds!

And WE adore Electra Heart's sweet, yet sharp musical poke at our society's contradictions and superficialities AND all those tender, thoughtful love songs!

As always, endless admiration just beaming out of every orifice for you and your precious gems, Marina!

    I'm pretty sure that Marina & The Diamonds just refers to Marina - it's not a band.

    she had a different inspiration and concept for her new album so what? it is boring to do the same style over and over i would think. yes her sound is different and more refined/poppy but it is still unique and very marina. it's like Goldfrapp each of their albums sound different but all are great some go more mainstream some more artsy/abstract. it just depends on the artist feeling at the time.

    maybe it didn't talk off over here in the UK because it sounds f****ng awful.

    Re: amycakes86 – I wouldn't say it didn't take off in the UK. Primadonna was high on the charts (was it number one? I can't remember) and gets played all the time, with that other single, and the album was at number one.

    nothing to do with humour…people dont buy music for the humour. Its to do with the fact that her Brit fans knew her from the beginning and have noticed the changes in music style. US audiences are newer to her music and havent seen that change so just accept what she is now.

    The Humour? Is she taking the piss, she has got weaker as an artist, her direction in sound and story is boring and done, when she first came on the scene she was fresh and exciting, This just isn't. Blaming us for your tired direction you silly woman.

    I have both her albums, Family Jewels and Electra Heart. I can relate to every song she has. They all have intricate rhythms mixed with beautiful lyrics. Then again, my taste in music is not the norm, for I love meaningful lyrics and mind numbing pop music. She is not going to be the next katy perry or whatever the other hell person people barely know because she is too unique and creative to fit one mold. It is true the critics bolstered her new album, but they're the same critics to say britney spears's femme fatale was 5 stars.Whatever, I will be the lonely minority listening to Marina & the diamonds. I She's like a little secret that only certain few know.

    So embarrassing when someone writes an article about an artist and thinks they are a band…
