Marina and The Diamonds and Charli XCX-Just Desserts

chari xcx marina
A solid pop effort for the mainstream heads, as the wildly popular Marina and The Diamonds hook up with electro-pop’s rising star in Charli XCX, both for this track and an upcoming US tour. It’s an interesting piece, with the production blending together elements of dark pop, traditional pop and a touch of electro for a relatively diverse, yet very accessible production that should find favour with the mainstream heads. The vocal work from both meshes together extremely well, with both their distinct sections and duet segments complementing one another throughout, helped by the generally attitudinal vibe of the lyricism. It’s not anything that’s exactly to my tastes, but for a ‘radio-friendly’ duo such as this, it’s more listenable than most might expect.
