In 2021, indie pop diva Marina released Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land, her fifth studio album, via Neo Gold/ Atlantic Records. This month, Marina undertakes a global tour that brings her to The Anthem in DC on Thursday, Feb. 24.
The Anthem has issued a low-ticket alert for this show!
Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land includes the brand new single, “Venus Fly Trap,” available now at all digital platforms. “Whatever you give life/ you will get back,” sings Marina on the self-assured track, accompanied by a mesmerizing new official video which sees her surveying multiple eras of video vixens.

Ancient Dreams in a Modern Land marks Marina’s fifth studio album and first full-length release since 2019’s acclaimed LOVE + FEAR. The self-penned new album also sees Marina co-producing five tracks alongside songwriter/producer James Flanigan (Dua Lipa, Carly Rae Jepsen, Hayley Kiyoko) and GRAMMY Award-nominated producer/multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Decilveo (Andra Day, Bat For Lashes, Hinds), and includes the already released track, “Man’s World.”
Written solely by Marina (Marina Diamandis, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds!) in reaction to the startling statistics that only 2 percent of producers and 3 percent of engineers across popular music are women, “Man’s World” was produced by Decilveo and co-produced by Marina, and engineered by the first-ever female GRAMMY Award winner for “Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical,” Emily Lazar (Sia, Clairo, Haim). The song and accompanying video were met by high praise from a wide range of international media outlets, with Billboard declaring it among “Marina’s most important work to date.”
