Love + Fear (CD)
After a four-year hiatus and sans The Diamonds, Marina Diamandis returns with a sparkling new double album, Love + Fear. Fittingly, Love focuses on connection, empowerment, and enjoying life while Fear veers into darker terrain, focusing on inequality, indignity, and abuse of power. The sound is lush, glimmering, and full, the tracks immediately catchy and irresistible. It’s a return to her roots as an artist with DIY sensibilities that still retains the superstar qualities, soaring vocals, and rich pop sound of her early work.
