Marina Diamandis, aka Marina and the Diamonds, needs to do me a huge favor. It is, after all, her own fault that her song “I Am Not a Robot” keeps getting stuck in my head over and over again. Were her songwriting skills and pop sensibilities not so keen, the song from her 2010 debut album would not have been looping through my brain for the last five years.
Maybe seeing Diamandis live at Seattle’s Paramount Theater on Sunday, October 25th will cure my ailment. Even if it doesn’t, an evening of smart modern pop covering her three albums (including 2015’s Froot) is never a bad thing. I anticipate being able to easily forgive her for the constant earworm.
French singer Heloise Letissier’s musical project Christine and the Queens will open the show, as she tours in support of her just-released, self-titled album.
