So as to not annoy readers with too many posts, we try to keep to an objective of one blog maximum a day. Sometimes however something crops up that we have to share immediately. Today is one of those days.
As the BBC Sound Of 2010 finally reaches number one tomorrow, we’re pleased to see that Marina and the Diamonds, an artist we’ve been writing about since pretty much the inception of this blog back in 2008 when we first picked up her original demo CD has come as runner up. We’re therefore guessing that Ellie Goulding will take the number one spot, although we are slightly concerned that the limp and pathetic Owl City may sneak in there. Let the good music gods speak wisely please.
In celebration of Marina getting number two, which effectively recognises the work she has put in over the last year or so in building her profile, as well as her undoubted talent as a singer, performer and songwriter, here is a new video version of her current single. Hollywood played acoustic by Marina and the Diamonds. Superb stuff.
