La Roux

La Roux’s eponymous debut, ‘La Roux’, was just so good, wasn’t it? Mmmhmm, it sure was. And now, following a gap of only, oh, FIVE YEARS, the new LP from synthpop lady Elly Jackson, who it seems is now totally solo, having split with one-time conspirator Ben Langmaid, is finally on the horizon.

The nine tracks on ‘Trouble In Paradise’, as it’s titled, are all written and part-played by Jackson, with co-production from Ian Sherwin, who was credited as an engineer on 2008’s ‘La Roux’ LP.

Also of note La Roux-wise is a live launch party at London’s Conway Hall, on 1 Jul, and a just-listed tour, which starts at Glasgow’s ABC on 5 Nov, and winds on until its culmination at Manchester’s Ritz on 16 Nov.
