Marina seems to be having a little fun with the standard sultry gyrations of music videos, strapping on accordion-folded paper limbs in this clip for “Mowgli’s Road”. Her Geddy Lee crossed with Katy Perry vocal stylings are quite nice, and the turn for the weird around the 2:15 mark is a welcome one, but it’s hard to imagine a place for this song—it seems suitable only as the soundtrack for its own music video.

Marina has very ambitious goals for herself, which I can't imagine the majority of her audience really sharing on her behalf.
