Marina And The Diamonds         Foxes

A great warm up that are sure to be headline material, give it a year or two, if not sooner!

Marina is on 30 minutes later, after a complete set overhaul. An old television plays black and white movie clips, while a pink neon heart is lit up on the back wall with the words 'Electra Heart' running through it.

The Wulfrun is only just pushing half full tonight, but the crowd are buzzing regardless.

Marina opens with 'Homewrecker', a punchy, pop-style song that the crowd enjoys thoroughly.The first track is quickly followed up with 'Oh No!' and then back to her first album 'Family Jewels' for 'Mowgli's Road'.

We are thrown into 'Power And Control', of which Marina definitely has both over the crowd here in Wolverhampton tonight. Other tracks performed to perfection this evening include: 'Bubblegum Bitch', a slightly more guitar influenced pop song and 'Starring Role', a slower but poignant track, rocked up a little towards the end for a live performance. I much prefer Marina's latest offering for the album 'Electra Heart' as it comes across a little more energetic than the previous 'Family Jewels'. However all in all the performance and atmosphere tonight, even with a small crowd has been 100% energetic, pop-influenced fun: absolute perfection!

Foxes 4/5
