Marina & the Diamonds Embrace the Dance Floor on ‘Froot’

On Marina & the Diamonds new single, “Froot,” the Welsh starlet wants to teach eager fans about the importance of a balanced diet. The disco-laced jam, which is the title track from Marina’s upcoming third full-length (no date yet), sounds a bit like a videogame soundtrack on steroids.

There’s some scenery-chewing syllable stretching happening in “Froot” (“From win-tah sun / to sum-mah snow,” the former Charli XCX duet partner drawls), but those dramatics come across as just goofy fun. We can’t really tell if the single is supposed to be sexy or not, but it goes by way more quickly than it’s five-plus minute runtime would suggest. Stream below.
