The Angel Pop ventures to the outer edges of pop, combining her own creations in both English and French, and covers like Midnight Oil's Beds Are Burning, or Accroc aux Bimbos, a french adaptation of Orgasm Addict by the Buzzcocks. The album also features an easy listening version of Dadada by Trio, a nod to Nouvelle Vague who launched her and a tribute to punk rock.
Terry Hall, singer of the cult group The Specials, met Marina when they recorded a duetfor Nouvelle Vague. He returned to Paris and recorded four more magical duets with Marina for The Angel Pop: La Femme Chat, Beds Are Burning, Two Loves and Do You?.
The Angel Pop is an album which is very much like Marina: rhythmical, full of humour, and at times rebellious. If you want to discover more about her, visit her Official website.
