Marina & The Diamonds live at HiFi Bar, Melbourne

Marina & The Diamonds live in Melbourne

Marina & The Diamonds performed her first Australian concert at Melbourne’s HiFi bar on Tuesday night in support of The Family Jewels album. Being compared to artists such as Kate Bush, Florence + The Machine and Lady Gaga comes with great expectations, but Marina surpassed the hype. Straddling the line of indie and commercial with her brand of new wave/indie pop sound – decked out in a Mickey Mouse jumpsuit, Marina played a powerhouse set to the Diamond-cultists of Melbourne. My personal favourite was Shampain, youtube it. One to watch in 2011! Support was from lively Melbourne pop band Strange Talk. I covered the show for LifeMusicMedia, check out my photos.
