Marina and The Diamonds’ Melodramatic ‘State of Dreaming’

Do you like that part of The Wizard of Oz when everything gets colorized, but wish it happened more gradually? Good, because I think that’s the most expensive effect in this video. Followed by confetti. I’m pretty sure the cleavage featured was free, but who knows.

Spare as it is, this initially black-and-white chapter of Marina and The Diamonds’ Electra Heart, which in visual form is apparently a serialized “cinematic 70s Americana-type film,” is probably one of the best, song-wise. Does it make me want to go back and watch the first eight parts? Let me get back to you.
