La Roux – Let Me Down Gently

La Roux

La Roux

La Roux (aka Elly Jackson) is back after a rebirth into a darker synth pop.

This is a proper 80’s ballad, complete with lamenting lyrics but an optimistic beat. We especially love the mid-track break, where La Roux composes herself and the guitar kicks in.

La Roux worked with producer, Ian Sherwin, for her album ‘Trouble in Paradise’, which is out on 22 July on Polydor and available for pre-order on iTunes. The album is also available for stream on iTunes Radio.

Sounds like: Stevie Nicks, Ronika, Madonna, Ellie Goulding, Yelle, BLSHS, Indiana
