Last week La Roux and Heaven 17 performed three songs for BBC Radio 6 at their Maida Vale studios in London. Together they sung In For The Kill, Temptation and a cover of Trent D'Arby's Sign Your Name. Check out the videos from the performance below!…
"Elly Jackson is one-half of the uber-brilliant British electropop duo La Roux. And she’s generally the only one you ever hear from or see (her music partner, Ben Langmaid, doesn’t perform; guess he’s sort of a shut-in?). But that’s cool, because Elly is pretty awesome. And chatty!"

Ms. Jackson, who recalls early Madonna, or even Neneh Cherry, sounds coy even when she's mad, but thanks to the lush, throbbing arrangements, she is never chilly, never off-putting"…
"La Roux's tunes - which the pair cut in Langmaid's living room - feature staccato synths over pulsing beats and Jackson's insistent high-pitched vocals... "All the songs are sad," says Jackson, who shed tears in the recording sessions. "It was quite intense."
