Personalities | La Roux | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 2008–present)

Eighties-influenced synth-pop duo La Roux, fronted by outspoken Elly Jackson, arrived on the scene with 2009 monster hit ‘In For The Kill’. The singer is instantly recognizable by her gravity-defying hairstyle, but it was her music, created with partner Ben Langmaid, that did the talking; their self-titled debut LP shot to No. 2 in the UK in 2009 and went platinum, single ‘Bulletproof’ reaching No. 1.
