Album Review: Marina & The Diamonds -- Froot

25 March 2015 | 3:32 pm | Dylan Stewart

On full-rounded tracks like Weeds, though, Diamandis hits her straps and proves that no matter what lives on pop’s fringe, it’s worth exploring.

When is a pop album not a pop album?

And what does it become when it’s not a pop album anymore? FROOT, the third album by Welsh songstress Marina Lambrini Diamandis, who fronts Marina & The Diamonds, aims to unearth answers to this question with her left-of-centre, powerful approach to 12 songs. Her voice is intimidating in its presence (see opening song, Happy), and electro-pop seeps through in the title track and Solitaire. On full-rounded tracks like Weeds, though, Diamandis hits her straps and proves that no matter what lives on pop’s fringe, it’s worth exploring.
