Continuing on the brilliance of the first part of Fear & Loathing, Marina kind of surprisingly dropped a new proper single today. Radioactive is a dancey, synthy and totally brilliant because it sounds like an acceptable evolution of Marina And The Diamonds, and not an opportunistic stab at trying to sound relevant.
Sure, those who liked her for being an popstar in disguise and who considered her a quality guilty pleasure will be disappointed and even angry at her for pulling the dance card. To those people I'd say she is still building her universe and making it evolve along with her, and however "current" this song may sound, it's still totally Marina and quite undeniably a return in top form.
I've said it countless times already, but Marina is one of the very few major popstars of our time. Her journey so far has been very exciting and I can't wait to see what she's got in store for her second album.
PS: I love the fact that she gives her first label Neon Gold (whose blogis one of the best things on the internet) a shout-out during the middle eight.
