Jimmy Brown - 5th Feb 2015

Taken from her third album Froot (April 6), Marina Diamantis and director Markus Lundqvist travelled to the volcanic island of Lanzarote for this promo for I'm A Ruin to create this absorbing performance video. All swirling robes, Marina performs amidst the desolate, rugged, black landscape before leaping into freezing water.

"[Marina] was wonderful to work with, a real hard worker," says Markus. "We worked for 32 hours straight and she just got stuck right in, even in freezing cold water."
