Daily Dose Pick: La Roux


With her distinctively coiffed hair and perfectly crafted synthpop, La Roux’s Elly Jackson revives the spirit of the Eurythmics and the Human League.

The 21-year-old artist is quick to declare her love for George Michael and lack thereof for Lady Gaga, while citing everyone from David Bowie to Molly Ringwald among her influences. Her self-titled debut album, written with producer Ben Langmaid, is full of back-to-back hits in the making, and has already made her a star in her native UK.

Visit La Roux on MySpace, check out the official website, scan Jackson’s photo blog, read an interview, catch her on tour, and buy

the album.
