British electro-pop duo La Roux has made a splash with their self-titled debut album. If you’re a new fan, or never heard of them, check out videos and tour dates here!
[lastfm]La Roux[/lastfm]’s debut album spawned their hit single “Bulletproof” and now the duo (composed of singer Elly Jackson and keyboardist Ben Lagmaid) is getting ready to release their next single “In For The Kill“. A few weeks ago, online sales for the new track spiked over 600 percent after the song was featured during HBO‘s Entourage.

Elly Jackson says she gets the biggest thrill when fans relate to their songs.
“That’s what the whole point of songs for me is. That you can listen to a song and go, ‘wow, I think they’re talking about my life,’ you know and they’re not, but it feels like it’s your life and then that song forever becomes about that particular year in your life for you or whatever, and that’s what’s great about songwriting. It’s a very powerful thing.”
Unfortunately, La Roux had to cancel a tour earlier this month due to illness. Lucky for us, they’re back and plan to kick off their fall tour in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 1st and will wrap up in New York City on November 17th.
