Marina and the Diamonds Release ‘E.V.O.L.’ as Valentine’s Day Gift to Fans
You can thank Cupid for new music! Marina and the Diamonds love their fans so much that they dropped a new track for Valentine’s Day.
The song is a bit of a beat-heavy track, evoking Depeche Mode and Britney Spears. Singer Marina Diamandis’ voice is deeper than normal, which is a little bit jarring on the chorus, because it’s harmonized with a falsetto.
The song examines the dissolution of a relationship and how fast something can devolve from something beautiful to something painful. Diamandis sings, “It only takes two lonely people / To f— love up and make it evil / It only takes a drop of evil / To f— up two beautiful people / L-O-V-E / L-O-V-E / E-V-O-L.”
Yes, in this song ‘E.V.O.L.’ means “evil.”
The song was accompanied by an inexplicable video, featuring Diamandis in a public bathroom in a biker jacket alternated with footage of the gorgeous singer in a blond wig and Marilyn Monroe-style pinup makeup. It’s best if you don’t try to understand it and just enjoy it for what it is.
