"Fear and Loathing" (titled "Fear & Loathing" on the US release) is a song by Marina and the Diamonds on her second studio album, Electra Heart. The song was used as part one in The Archetypes video series.

Background and compositionEdit

Produced by Liam Howe, Diamandis called "Fear and Loathing" a turning point in her life, after which she stopped being a "bitter person" and began to work with new people and try new things, even though she wrote the song alone in her bedroom in London. Diamandis placed the track last on Electra Heart because she views it as a "letting go" song.[1]

Diamandis's grandmother, who was 93 at the time, is featured on the track. Diamandis recorder her 'gran' while she was cooking in her kitchen, singing 'an old Greek folk song' which is faintly heard at the end of "Fear and Loathing". [2]
