La Roux

Comprising of singer/synthist Eleanor Jackson and co-writer/co-producer Ben Langmaid, the duo, known as La Roux, which translates as "The Red" came forth during the middle 2009 with their self titled debut. Upon a fist inspection, it would seem that their impressionism and flamboyant stylishness would naturally embark from the French countryside, but in fact Britain is where these two call home.

Comprising of singer/synthist Eleanor Jackson and co-writer/co-producer Ben Langmaid, the duo, known as La Roux, which translates as "The Red" came forth during the middle 2009 with their self titled debut. Upon a fist inspection, it would seem that their impressionism and flamboyant stylishness would naturally embark from the French countryside, but in fact Britain is where these two call home. The duo -- who often resemble more of a solo act via Jackson's curvaceous hair style and predominant on stage appearance, fuse the similar styles of synthpop and its electro cousin. It's clear that David Bowie is a prime influence for both Jackson's image and occasional derivativeness. She reminds us that the relationship between herself and Langmaid is "very much a half and half sharing situation... not like a singer producer outfit". With that in mind their debut was, and still is, one of the year's better success stories, and will certainly provide any follow-up with something to anchor from. Pressing will be how long can such an artist/producer relationship last, given that they often spiral inwards and not outwards over time. « hide
