3) Marina on BBC Breakfast


4) Marina on Frock Me


5) Marina on C4's Koko Pops

...and all these kids are defnitely not Robots...



Check out the 80s Robot dance vibes! We love the PS22 Choir and are so touched that they took on Robot. We highly recommend their version of Phoenix's Lisztomania too, it makes our stony hearts sing

She's not a Robot in LA either

Here is a sneaky peak at the visuals that Marina has shot for her forthcoming tour.


Filmed on Hollywood Boulevard no less ("OH MY GOD" etc. etc.)

It's also Marina's own entry to a competition where we're inviting you to submit your own Robot video. You can win a flipcam and some cold hard cash. that's right, cash.
DETAILS ARE OVER HERE.
Personally, I'm waiting for a Chatroulette video entry. Maybe without the self-pleasure element.

Jools Holland ain't a Robot either

She Said "it's the Rak Session"

Hopefully you've spotted that Plan B's She Said is in the process of running up the chart this week and so as an aside, he's a little video of Ben performing the track acoustically.



The EP is OVER HERE (subtle).
