The Next Lana del Rey: Marina and the Diamonds
Now, look very carefully at that picture. If you just glanced at it, you would think it was Lana del Rey. But it isn’t. It’s Welsh singer/songwriter Marina Diamandis, who goes by the stage name Marina & the Diamonds. According to Marina, the “Diamonds” are not her backing band, but her fans. And this rising star doesn’t just look like Lana del Rey. She sounds like her, too. Although we think that Marina’s moody, mysterious pop is better than Lana’s. Becasue Marina actually sings.
