La Roux’s synthpop in Bristol
PUBLISHED: 13:00 15 June 2014
LA ROUX will be performing her synthpop sounds at Bristol’s O2 Academy.
The Bulletproof singer is releasing her second album, titled Trouble In Paradise, later this year.
La Roux originally consisted of singer Elly Jackson and producer Ben Langmaid, but he left following the recording of the new album.
The duo combined Elly’s folk and electronic influences when they began working together in 2006.
Initially their project was called Automan, and they wrote largely acoustic music before scrapping the name and sound for sounds to those inspired by Prince and David Bowie.
The name means ‘red-haired one’ in French, and they released their debut single Quicksand in 2008.
La Roux followed it up with two successful singles, including In For The Kill, in 2009 as well as a self-titled album, which reached number two in the charts.
The new tracks form the first offerings in almost five years, and La Roux is embarking on a UK-wide tour to perform the new album.
La Roux will be at the O2 Academy on November 10 from 7pm.
