The ruin of Marina Diamandis

Saturday, 28 March, 2015

It’s going to be loud at the Autódromo de Interlagos in São Paulo tonight, but instead of the usual revving of F1 engines, there’ll be music. Lollapalooza Brasil promises two days of great sounds with a lineup that includes Pharrell Williams, Skrillex, Jack White, Interpol and Marina and the Diamonds. The Welsh singer is promoting her third album, Froot, and from it here’s I’m a Ruin, which was directed by Marcus Lundqvist and filmed in January on the island of Lanzarote.

There might be a few too many echoes of Kate Bush, Lana Del Rey, Florence and the Machine and Madonna here for some of Marina’s core fans, though. Snippets from the YouTube comments:

Daniel Sanchez Davey: “I love Marina but this video is too similar to Madonna’s Frozen vídeo clip (not a Madonna fan) seriously the oriental black clothing, the desert, fast skies, the hands on the earth. I’m sorry but it looks almost like a copy, just take a look. What happened here Marina? You are always very original.”

Dania Osorio1: “Well, marinas a huge fan of Madonna so I think she hot inspired from that video. Yet you cant really judge on her for making an awesome video its similar but it was marinafied?.”
