It’s been five years since the release of La Roux‘s self-titled debut LP back in 2009 and one thing is for certain…five years is much too long of a wait. After the premier of “Let Me Down Gently” earlier this month, the duo has left us with “Uptight Downtown,” a song I had heard almost a year ago while watching low quality concert videos in hopes of finding some new La Roux material. Even then the song sounded amazing and it’s wonderful to finally hear a mastered version. Staying true to form, Elly’s beautiful sugary voice glides seamlessly over a twangy dance beat.
La Roux‘s sophomore effort Trouble in Paradise will be released July 8th. Stream “Uptight Downtown” below.
