La Roux

La Roux (French for “the Red-Haired One”) is a collaboration between 20-years-old singer and keyboardist Elly Jackson, whose ginger bob inspired the name, and co-writer and co-producer Ben Langmaid.

Their first successful single “Quicksand” was released in November 2008 on French label Kitsune with remixes from Autokratz, Beni and Chateau Marmont. Things have moved fast since its release and apart from being featured on many ones to watch lists for 2009, they gained fifth spot in the BBC sound of 2009 poll. Having also been snapped up by Polydor Records their debut album is due to be released later in the year.

In For The Kill“, the duo’s second single, is a snaking electro-pop fancy that matches Jackson’s emotional vocals with insistent drums and addictive keyboard line. “In For The Kill ” is to be released on March 16th on Polydor Records and even now you can find “That Doesnt Sound Like Skream’s” remix from dubstep don Skream.

You can watch videos on “Quicksand” and “In For The Kill” further.
