It's actually the high notes I struggle with. I started singing as an alto, and now I'm a mezzo but more comfortable in the alto range than a true mezzo like Marina would be. In some of the unreleased demos for Die Life, like Jealousy ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_IOdY675Ss ), it's fairly easy to hear how she's straining to hit some of the notes and keep them in her diaphragm where it's stronger. If I push I can go a tad lower than Marina, and when I sing her stuff a cappella (which I do a lot tbh) I tend to transpose lower naturally anyway - my natural voice will always be alto in the end.

Being able to sing that low is really impressive, I really wish I could sing higher but as a tall/broad guy my voice is naturally fairly deep so I always try to sing an octave lower. I like that song but not a huge fan of the Staccato type of singing? I am honestly not sure if that is the correct terminology, her voice is too good to do the short notes, I want to hear it more than less.

Yeah, it's staccato. Scab and Plaster has a really fun story to it as well as having a few more blended and sustained notes in it. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7An3WX8KGg It's also from Die Life.

for an example of my voice, I did try to do a cover once here diamantediamandis.tumblr.com/post/129499861413/1010-messing-up-of-covers and messed it up beautifully.

You have nice, unique style of articulation, the mic quality is horrible though haha, good quality is hard to come by, sometimes cheap stuff is really good and other times expensive mics can be utter crap.

My brain messes up with my accent a lot for no real reason. I think it's because I know a lot of languages, and when I learn a language I pick up the accent too.

And yeah, I'm wary about buying mics a lot of the time because I'm poor and I don't use it that often now. I'm working on some stuff of my own but I'm not recording anything until I have the tracks - I don't like writing lyrics without the track first. tracks are hard.

Composing music (as opposed to lyrics) has always been the impressive part about music to me, being able to create seamless flowing songs, even if they have tempo changes or what-have-you.

How many languages do you know? I always tell myself I will learn something but find myself too busy, all i learn t in high school was very small amounts of Indonesian in year 8/9.

Fragments of 7. Greek being one of them. My name's Greek, anyway. Means gold. Which is why I love Gold the song. That's a lie, it's a really relaxing song which is why I love it. The fact that my name translates into its title is just a bonus. I just pick up languages ridiculously easily. When I get bored of Italian, I'm planning on trying for Polish tbh.

I did some composition in high school, but I lost the software I used when my old laptop died. I did a couple of old songs that can no longer be found anywhere (thank god tbh they were shit) using GarageBand, and I'm debating on whether or not to set up a Mac virtual OS so I can use it again.

Geez, I wish I knew fragments of just 3, other languages was never something I was interested in school but I wished I did it now. Other schools always learned things like Japanese or German, we learn't Indonesian, them being our closest major neighbor in Australia, but jokes on them we no longer have good relations with Indonesia.

I did French, German, and Spanish in school. Dropped German at GCSE, passed Spanish and got an A* in French. Picked up some basic Greek with my parents when I was like 8. Developed it a bit more when I was 11. Grew up around Welsh, but didn't pick up much of it. Native Brit, so English is a given. Parents learned Arabic and I gave that a try, but I only remember the word for hospital. Dad's tried to teach me some Russian, but all I remember is the number 7, tnank you, and how to call someone an uncultured bastard.

In other news I found a thing where I can make tracks, shit might be going down now.

Technique wise, she's fairly basic in TFJ. I'm a trained singer with about half an octave less range than her, but I've not sang in a long time so it's out a bit further these days. Overall, she has a really good range but she pushes herself a lot - during the Electra Heart era she actually nearly killed her career (she had to push back The Lonely Hearts Club tour because she'd torn her vocal chords) because so many of the songs were pushing her range. And her range is really shown off across Froot, with better technique. Forget's a good one for both range and technique, and so is Solitaire for range.

Wow being within half an octave range sounds super impressive, guessing its the low notes that give trouble? I am always impressed with how low she can go. I have listened to my fair share of artists that have ruined their voices, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden/Audioslave is probably my favourite singer and his voice is completely shot these days compared to the late 80's/90's. Hopefully she does not do the same to her own.

The third has a lot of links back to the first, I feel. It's closure on the problems she first addressed in TFJ. Electra Heart was meant to be a side project, and there was an album in the works a lot more like TFJ called Die Life. When her label said she couldn't do an album and a side project, she chose Electra. I spend a lot of time wondering how she'd be if she'd chosen Die Life instead.
#80 - finrier (10/28/2015) [-]
I would have really liked to hear a but more of TFJ, i do feel like Froot was her most well rounded album so far if that makes sense? There are no songs I do no enjoy listening to, (I know die hard fans will listen to everything with the same enthusiasm by their favoured artist, as i do other bands like the Chili Peppers.) I think for me the reason I like family jewels so much over the others is the uniqueness it has for me, I had not reallly heard a females artist of her vocal range/skill in pop music before.
