Elly Jackson and her epic hair.
La Roux (originally Elly Jackson and Ben Langmaid, the former doing the singing) are a British group who were very much "Best Newcomer" circa 2009, though it took them until 2014 to finally follow through with a second LP, by which time Langmaid was out of the picture.
Their style is best described as electro-pop and they have currently released one album, La Roux
. Four of the tracks have been released as singles:
- "Quicksand". Got them noticed but barely bothered the charts.
- "In for the Kill". UK number # 2.
- "Bulletproof". UK number # 1 and straight in too. This was even more surprising considering it was released on the week of the death of Michael Jackson.
- "I'm Not Your Toy". UK #27.
The second album, "Trouble In Paradise", is due in July 2014.
