Marina and the Diamonds plays tiny DIY show in Hackney

Last night, Marina and the Diamonds took to the stage for the first show in support of her new album ‘FROOT’ – get the lowdown right here.

Taking on the rather intimate confines of Hackney’s Oslo for the special DIY Presents… show, Marina Diamandis admitted on stage that last night’s live stint was her first in over a year and half, as well as her first appearance in the capital in almost double that time.

Her set marked the first time that fans were treated to live renditions of some of her new tracks, including ‘Blue’, ‘Forget’ and ‘I’m A Ruin’, as well as her debut opportunity to perform them. “I really, really like playing the new songs, and we’d rehearsed for a week so I felt very comfortable playing them. People seemed to know them already too!” she laughed. “I couldn’t even hear myself singing!”
