If you’ve been dancing to Marina and the Diamonds’ “I am Not a Robot” recently, you are not the only one. This one-girl group, featuring half- Welsh, half-Greek Marina Diamandis, whose last name means “diamonds” in Greek, has made quite a splash in the UK over the past several months.

After several hit singles, her debut CD, Family Jewels, is set to be released on the 22nd of February, and the single “Hollywood” is available now. Her first promotional tour began this week, and she has two London dates before travelling around the UK, ending with a show in London the day after her CD hits stores.

Diamandis got her beginnings as most musicians do, in her home. In fact, she recorded her first few songs right on her Mac using GarageBand. She didn’t let this stop her, as she knows she is following her destiny. “I think you should go wherever your instinct takes you in life,” she explained. We definitely agree.

Are you still confused about who exactly the Diamonds are? So were we. As it turns out, the Diamonds are not Marina’s band, but are meant to represent the fans. She is definitely one to watch in 2010.
