First off, sorry for such a lengthy silence on this website. Amongst many new years resolutions, to be a more a devoted blogger ranks moderately high.
I haven’t much to report, I spent my Christmas making the first serious steps on the writing of the next record. I have a pretty clear idea now of what I want it to be and have about four songs that I’m very pleased with. We’re spending the next couple of months demoing in a converted synagogue.
"The title song of its current album - "The First Days of Spring" (Cherrytree), a promise of renewal based only on "hoping that one day you may come back" - the coda rang with piano chords like a buildup by Bruce Springstreen's E Street Band."

Check out the New York Times' review of La Roux's live performance in NYC earlier this week.
"The self-titled La Roux debut album, released in the United States last month (it was a hit in England this summer), is dizzying fun.
