Raves for La Roux:
“Elly Jackson is the perfect London pop star of the moment…” **** Rolling Stone
“Elly is no clichéd electro-minx. Her whipsmart modern take on the heartsore side of the 80’s is centered around her vulnerable voice and big-hearted love songs, drawing on a youthful infatuation with classic pop. It’s the raw humanity contrasted with the crispest, glassiest sounds and Langmaid’s bright beats that make La Roux as accessible as they are irresistible.” NME
“With pop songs like “Quicksand” and the synth-heavy “In for the Kill,” it’s time for them to set the U.S. on fire.” Bust
“something new and effortlessly winning.” Pop & Hiss – LA Times
