Marina and the Diamonds :: "Seventeen"

We've written about Marina and the Diamonds before. Twice. This makes three. One part Regina Spektor, one part Lily Allen (this isn't controversial but it might frustrate some people and, well, she's British too) and one part late Rilo Kiley (think the glammed-out pop of "Black Light"), Marina is ready to kick down the doors of the United States. "Seventeen" opens with a pedantic and then down-right impolite piano-riff. The song then tumbles into a slicked-out chorus. It's irreverent. It doesn't matter. This girl is ready to blow.
