We may never understand the wig’n’Stargate combo of ‘Radioactive’, but ‘Starring Role’ shows that whatever this Electra Heart palaver is all about, Marina’s still at the core of it – along with some fiendish cad who’s clearly been doing her wrong. This cut is a classy step forward from ‘The Family Jewels’ and ace to boot.
