La Roux
There was a thread for this band but it was about the song In It For the Kill, so if moderators feel that they should merge our threads together, I don't mind.

You can talk about anything La Roux here. I can't wait to hear their album.

I love La Roux.
I first thought that the singer over-sang slightly, but now I love her.
Seen her wearing Henry Holland in the Bulletproof video? And that amazing Mondrian/YSL-esque jacket - great.
Annoyingly, I didn't buy the album on itunes but bought Bulletproof, In for the Kill and Quicksand . . I kind of regret it. I'd like to have the album

I got the album yesterday but haven't listened to it all yet. There's some killer pop tunes on there. I also like the fact that Elly's got a very definite idea about having her own image - very androgynous and with the amazing hair - that sets her apart from other female singers.

My only criticism is that when she sings in a higher register it gets a touch wearing after a while.

Their music is ok, but she should learn to shut her mouth from time to time.

I find her disgustingly annoying.

So far I only listened to the songs - havenīt seen a performance - and I definitely like their music.

I really canīt decide if I prefer Little Boots, La Roux or Florence & The Machine...

^Yeah, there seems to be a new wave of twentysomething British singers with unique sounds this year. Last year was the songstresses (Duffy, Adele and even though she was around for quite a while, Estelle finally got some deserved attention).

that's how i feel as well...that voice. a bit irritating to my ear. i like unique voices...kazu makino from blonde redhead...but i find that her voice tends to meld with the music..la roux sounds a bit disconnected.

Here's a picture of Elly with her mum - an actress best known for her part in The Bill - you can see she's not inherently androgynous-looking but is a rather lovely girl under all that styling (nme.com):

I liked In For The Kill and love Bulletproof. She seems quite opinionated, always seems to be in the entertainment news complaining about someone or something, haha. I'd be interested to know why the album wasn't what you were expecting nolamartin as I'm thinking about buying it
