The Specials! Franz! Dre! Your soundtrack to ‘09

Posted by , 13 January 2009

La Roux

Who? 20-year-old, Brixton-dwelling, ‘80s-loving, female keyboardist who thrives on sounding like the Human League and Depeche Mode. Her real name is Elly Jackson, she has hair flying in every direction and a name that means “red-haired one” in French.

Why do we care? La Roux might just be the catalyst for a synth-pop revolution in the charts and clubs which’ll find Frankmusik, Charli XCX and Lady GaGa on your radar as well. She’ll be the loudest and the brightest, though.

When? Debut single Quicksand is out now. Expect an album sometime in ’09. Go and see her live, and you’ll be cooler than your best mate.
