Unless you’ve lived under a rock since 2010, there’s a chance you’ve heard of Marina and the Diamonds. Whether it’s from a sample used on a Hoodie Allen hit or teenage girls with heart-shaped beauty marks sharpied onto their cheeks, Marina is here and isn’t going anywhere. So consistent is her presence that she has promised a music video for every song on her newest album, Electra Heart. Today she released one of the darker and most powerful videos in her series, Lies. The video is so breathtakingly real that you can’t help but think it is an excellent reflection to the first video she released off Electra Heart, Part 1: Fear and Loathing. While the majority of the songs off Electra Heart are full of bubblegum pop and sickly sweet beats, this one puts everything into perspective. Watch below!
