Marina & the Diamonds – Hollywood (Fenech-Rolex Remix)[audio:http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Marina-and-the-Diamonds-Hollywod-Fenech-Rolex-Remix.mp3]
Marina and the Diamonds is the new quirky/weird/stand out UK songstress that has quickly become one-of-those-artists-they-love-to-remix. Her album, the Family Jewels, came out in February which is a pretty good first effort in my opinion. Her single “Hollywood” is a clever and personal reflection on American obsession and culture coming from the young English artist – but to me it was missing something. Take it the way you want but among some electro, it’s fixed with this remix. The intensity and the chorus of the song is amplified (and made more danceable).
