Mail music: BIC RUNGA King Tut's, Glasgow, June 10 HHHHH.

Byline: LINDSAY PURDON

She may look innocent and placid but this singer-songwriter from New Zealand is a seductive lyricist.

Her album Beautiful Collision manages to steer clear of the over-produced blandness that some more prominent female singers are guilty of. She can do heartfelt and melancholy with ease The Be All And End All and Honest Goodbyes are two of her best. Her upbeat numbers are rarer but just as accomplished, while Something Good came across particularly well live.

Her interaction with the crowd was restrained but as she left the stage she smiled at the genuinely warm reception she'd had.
