9 Must-Hear Unreleased Marina & The Diamonds Gems

#1"Scab and Plaster"

Best lyric: "You keep telling me that I'm bad / But I keep on getting better faster"

Recorded for her sophomore Electra Heart album, the meaning behind this '80s-tinged stomper is still debated among fans. Some think it's detailing an abusive relationship, some think it's about Marina's father. The mysterious cut combines a deep melancholy with bitingly empowering lyricism and intricate production in a way only Marina & The Diamonds has mastered.
