Better Than That

  • This sassy song tells a story in which Marina Diamandis is talking to a brokenhearted man. She gives short shrift to the woman that lured him into her sexual trap before casting him aside, saying he can do better than that.
  • The heavy track is doused in wah-wah axes and classic rock. One of the first tunes that Marina wrote for Froot, it set the mood for the rest of the songs. "It is, it's like classic rock!" she enthused to The Line Of Best Fit. "For me it's really important for the sound of the record 'cause that was one of the first songs I wrote and that heralded the new shift in direction."
