Firefox AK (ABC2, Glasgow) 16/2/07

Genre: Pop
Artist:Firefox AK
Hot on the heels of Annie and Sally Shapiro comes another Scandinavian pop 'princess', this time in the flesh, supporting Canada's Junior Boys at the ABC2 in Glasgow.

Alone on stage, and utilising only an iPod and a white Fender as weapons, Firefox AK steadily won over a sedentary audience, with her synthy backing tracks and some jagged guitar work.

With the minimal setup adding a palpable edge to the more polished album tracks, this was an exciting set, and one can't help wondering what a spectacle it would be to see this artist with a full backing band.

Very enjoyable.

I also heartily recommend the album 'Madame! Madame!' on the Razzia label. Nothing earth shattering, just quality electro-pop, like it should be.
