Crisp N' Fresh: La Roux Goes 'In For The Kill'...Again

Friday, October 8, 2010

Since my Mom knows who La Roux is, it's time for them to be famous Stateside. So what better than to re-release "In For The Kill" off of their engulfing 2009 debut album with a new spiffed video? Instead of sprinting around like Knight Rider with neon lights splashing in the background, Elly is strutting and dancing the Carlton Banks now in a seedy brothel...because Americans can't watch anything unless their is something sexy wexy about it. Yeah. Concept aside, Elly Jackson looks hella cool in this. She is rocking that gold jacket and plays up her Annie Lennox/Grace Jones androgynous look exceptionally well.

La Roux are continuing being one of the best things to pop out of 2009 as they will be one of the many featured on Kanye West's My Beautiful Twisted Dark Fantasy. As a mouthful of twee as that album title is...La Roux and Kanye on a track may redeem the red suit wearing rapper for me. West is apparently going to be on the remix to "In For The Kill", a step that should no doubt get them even more attention. I have to say that "In For The Kill" is not as grand as previous hits, "Quicksand" or "Bulletproof", but it is still a highlight off of their debut, which I still highly recommend you pick up if you love you some synthesized ecstasy, because it has tons of it.
