In On The Kill Taker

la-roux-kill

After the underwhelming, indeed some might say rubbish, Quicksand 12″, La Roux has some catching up to do in the 2009 ladies of electropop race.

Still it’s not over yet and mildly amusing parentage stories aside, Elly Jackson is set to get things back on track with 2nd single ‘In For The Kill’, which despite floating around for the best part of a year now is a much more invigorating proposition.

As the inevitable several dozen remixes start to rear their head most of the attention has to date been lavished on Skream’s recent refix. For me though the honors must surely go to Heartbreak who have turned the original’s melodramatic synth-popera into a gorgeously woozy 7 minutes of mogadon disco, like tripping through the stars with a head full of cough syrup.
