HOLY WATER: EVIAN CHRIST vs MARINA & THE DIAMONDS
It was late last year that scouse recluse, Evian Christ, slithered into our consciousness via YouTube with the stealth of a Merseyside carjacker. Before long, his name and minimalist hip-hop experiments spread like D-list knees in a VIP room, resulting in loads of embarrassing drooling from would-be labels and managers ready to put blood to parchment. Eventually, the trainee teacher signed with TriAngle based upon their bromance with music’s most illustrious mollusc, Clams Casino. After a couple months of inactivity, E-Christ puts Marina & the Diamonds’ Dr. Luke-produced abomination, Primadonna (taken from her album out next week, Electra Heart) to the chopping board and serves up a popcentric edit that goes great with seafood.
