Welsh songwriter Marina Diamandis, who has a voice that sits somewhere between the cool, off-kilter strains of Nico (of Velvet Underground fame) and the ethereal quality of, say, Kate Bush, sets her songs of love and self-worth to a broad canvas that ranges from downbeat electronica (I'm A Ruin, Solitaire) to occasionally formulaic mid-'80s pop (Better Than That).
