La Roux

Music - September 16th, 2009

La Roux are a British electropop synth duo band made up of singer and synth player Elly Jackson, and co-writer and co-producer Ben Langmaid, with Jackson describing their respective roles as “very much a half and half sharing situation… not like a singer producer outfit”, but also recognising that it often can “look like a solo act”. Their music is influenced by 1980s synthpop including Yazoo, The Human League, Heaven 17 and Blancmange.
