La Roux

I finally heard La Roux on the radio yesterday, and "Bulletproof" sounded amazing. The London duo is Eleanor "Elly" Jackson and Ben Langmaid, and their self-titled debut album came out in September of 2009. They play electro-pop reminiscent of the '80s style, and Elly has garnered some attention for her androgynous, glam-rock look.

They're also releasing a compilation album, Sidetracked; it will come out July 26th, but seems to only be available in the UK. It features several artists and includes Elly's cover of the Rolling Stones' "Under My Thumb."

The American tour has been canceled because Elly contracted pharyngitis, but they should be continuing their tour in the UK in a few weeks.
