La Roux

So, which indie band is “established” but not “Kings Of Leon-established, or anything”? Hmm, right, let me see. Kings Of Leon? No, don’t know. Anyway, whoever they are, they are helping Elly Jackson write the next La Roux album, the bastards.

Yes, Jackson has told the NME that she is working with friends from an unnamed “established” indie band on her next album, though she wouldn’t say who specifically. Presumably they’re too embarrassed to be named? She told the music weekly: “I’ve been writing with some friends from another band, but I won’t say who they are. [They’re] established, but not like Kings Of Leon-established or anything”.

Some are speculating the indie band in question is White Lies, though their spokesperson wouldn’t confirm or deny any such collaboration.
