introducing the red-haired one…

Have I mentioned that 2009 is off to a huge bang already?! Some solid tunes and some great records on the way have already begun putting 2008 to shame! May I introduce you to another hot act. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to La Roux. They’ve come to us from England (where else?) and are made up of Elly Jackson and Ben Langmaid, they’ve also brought the force in the form of their debut single Quicksand released in November on Kitsune. A bit of a head-nodder, you’ll be dancing haphazardly in no time flat. It’s that infectious. For some reason, I hear some serious Eurythmics action with Timbaland dropping a beat from his mid 90’s sample library. Throw that in a blender with some Yaz and you’ve got La Roux. I think I’m in love…

The debut record will be out very soon via Polydor. You lucky Brits can catch them on the road now as they’re opening dates with Lily Allen. The rest of us? We’ll have to settle with checking out their MySpace.
