Go To

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. Four of the tracks from their first Self-Titled Album 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, was released in July 2014. Later in 2020, they released their third album, "Supervision" in February 7.


Not to be confused with Le Roux, a country-rock band from the '70s (sometimes referred to as Louisiana's Le Roux).

This time, baby, I'll be trope proof:


How well does it match the trope?
