Happy, upbeat pop formation Marina and the Diamonds are swarming Norman Records HQ with 7”. That’s great news, of course, and Can’t Pin Me Down will definitely circle around your head for at least two days after listening. Better Than That is even, well… You can judge for yourself whether the title covers the contents.
9/10 Alice Customer review, 30th April 2016
'Better than That' is different to some of her other songs. The muted opening sets the scene of the song, and it feels surprisingly laid back for this genre, partly due to the off beat backings and her calmly confident vocals. The song is the seventh track on her album 'Froot', although here it is paired with 'Can't Pin Me Down'. The lyrics are great, and Marina even said that the song is, musically speaking, 'Better than That' is her favourite song on the album and she listens to it “very regularly”.
'Can't Pin me Down' is so great, and the song voices her views and frustration about the media's misconception of the type of artist she is, and through the art of her new album. 'You need to get your eyes checked' - lyrics are strong and well thought out. 9/10
