Gig Review: Marina and the Diamonds @ Leeds Met

The last time I saw Marina and the Diamonds was at Glastonbury 2009. She was pretty much unknown and to be honest, quite bad. Since being placed second on the BBC Sound of 2009 list, things have got better and better for Marina and her Diamonds. Her album is really over-produced but some of it is brilliant and I really like her acoustic. On Monday I went to Leeds Met to see her again, and thankfully, she was much much improved. Her voice is pretty flawless live and her energy is brilliant. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a gig before with outfit changes but she did 3! My favourite part of the set was when she played piano, that’s when I like Marina best. Overall, probably the most interesting this to happen to pop music since GaGa and Marina also seems much more real.
