South London synth pop trio LA ROUX are blowing up my mind with their addictive first single Bulletproof. The song is a catchy, 1970's disco mixed with 1980's electro. Think the attitude of Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive with a slight hint of Depeche Mode's new wave sound. It was well received by music critics, and debuted at #01 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was also a hit in the US peaking at #08 on the US Billboard Hot 1oo.
And not to forget, I really like the vocalist Elly Jackson. I find her style, voice and lyrics absolutely artistic and beautiful!
