Imitation of Life

A journal about film, music, literature and any other form of imitation of life. Seeing through a glass darkly…

Marina, the umpteenth Kate

For someone like me who firmly believes that Hounds of Love still holds as one the best records of the 1980s and that the self-penned Wuthering Heights ranks among the most spectacular musical debuts ever, the almost standard announcement of the advent of the new Kate Bush every time a female singer-songwriter with a squeaky voice comes along is always received with mixed feelings of joy and mistrust.

Some of them have genuinely brought joy and happiness to the music world: Tori Amos, Alison Goldfrapp, the très unexpected Emilie Simon or, more recently, Florence Welsch.

My last Kate Bush-esque discovery bears a strong resemblance to the latter not only for her ability to create good pop songs but also because they both come with a (technically inexistent) band to add to their names, Florence’s The Machine and Marina’s Diamonds.

Have a look at her video for the infectious Mowgli’s Road. I need some help here. Why do I love so much those froggy limbs?

Enjoy and kisses,
