No Artists Found : Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms
Make way for the newest queen of pop...
There's no denying we've seen her sort before. She's the absolute physical double of The Cardigans' Nina Persson. Though the comparison will no doubt haunt her, it doesn't do Heidrun justice either. She's got a far more dangerous edge.
There's far more to get your teeth into musically, too. Tonight, especially, Heidrun has a sore throat and her voice is husky. This stops their pop songs getting too pretty and adds a dose of grit. That balance works best in forthcoming single 'New York Boy', but best of all is the '70s disco shimmer of 'This Is All I Need (Disco Song)' that has the glitzy chorus Kylie could only dream of. Make way for the newest queen of pop.
