Neon Gold Records had already got my attention by releasing my number two tune of the year, so it’s with great pleasure to say that their second release is also a bit of a stonker, albeit a different kind of stonk.
It’s by Marina and The Diamonds, a Kate Bush-esque character from Wales via Ancient Greece. Herself and Florence Welch should get together on a duet. This is cranium-magnetising pop produced by Liam Howe (of Sneaker Pimps). The 7″ is available from Pure Groove and features “Obsessions” b/w “Mowgli’s”. It’s nice every now and again to get a reminder why you do this and Marina and the Diamonds is a damn good one today.
