Marina Diamandis -- aka Marina and the Diamonds -- was born in Wales in 1986. Her piano/keyboard-driven songs showcase a unique voice and melodic style that varies from melancholic ballads to out-and-out glam pop. Her first single, "Obsessions/Mowgli's Road," was issued in 2009 by indie label Neon Gold in the U.S., and was followed later that year by The Crown Jewels EP. After playing the British festival circuit in the summer of 2009, Marina returned to the studio to complete her debut album, 2010's The Family Jewels, before quickly hitting the road again. The group's second full-length studio outing, 2012's Electra Heart, was preceded by the singles "Primadonna" and "Radioactive," the latter of which appeared only on the deluxe version of the album. ~ Jack Semmence
