Marina & The Diamonds – Obsessions
Second release on Neon Gold Records follows the wonderful Passion Pit. Marina is some talent, melding the theatrically lavish vocal and orchestral flourishes of Kate Bush with the wonderful pop eccentricity of everyone from Cyndi Lauper to the Scissor Sisters. This is her bold and ambitious debut single, due out next Valentine’s Day.
The video is directed Tim Brown and was shot over a few days in November 2008. The video finds Marina meticulously constructing a large metal structure, slowly building towards a climactic reveal in the clip’s finale.
