La Roux Background
Established by Elly Jackson and
Ben Langmaid, La Roux was initially defined by each musician's upbringing. Jackson grew up in a household surrounded by music
of folk artists like Joni Mitchell. Her tastes morphed into EDM once she discovered the rave scene. Langmaid, on the other
hand, collaborated with Rollo, a classmate, to form Huff & Puff in the 90s. Langmaid also cut material as Atomic and contributed
to the Huff & Herb duo for Rollo's recording label. Langmaid additionally lent his songwriting skills to the outfit, Kubb.
by a mutual acquaintance, Jackson and Langmaid started collaborating on their music in the mid-2000s. They billed themselves
as Automan initially and penned acoustic music prior to shedding that guise and sound. They chose a different path for La
Roux, one inspired by the smooth sounds of David Bowie and Prince. Their first track, "Quicksand," arrived in 2008 and drew
attention from both The Guardian and BBC. Their sophomore single, "In for the Kill," dropped in the spring of 2009 and scored
the No. 11 spot on the U.K. charts. It eventually rocketed to No. 2. A week prior to the release of their eponymous album,
the single "Bulletproof" came out and snatched the No. 1 spot. In 2011, the pair took a break from traveling to focus on developing
their sophomore studio album. But during the production process, Langmaid exited the group, citing creative differences as
the reason behind his departure. Jackson soldiered on, running La Roux as a solo effort. She collaborated with multiple songwriters
along with Ian Sherwin (engineer) to bring the second album to fruition. Trouble in Paradise served as the culmination of
her efforts and arrived in the summer of 2014.
La Roux Albums
La Roux's discography is comprised of two
EPs, five singles, one mixtape, seven music videos, two promotional singles, one mix album and two studio albums, which include
La Roux (2009) and Trouble in Paradise (2014). Their first studio album earned the duo a Grammy for Best Electronic/Dance
Album in 2011, scored the No. 2 spot on the U.K. Albums chart and settled in at No. 7 on the Irish Albums chart. Their debut
effort also earned platinum certification from the British Phonographic Industry as well as the Irish Recorded Music Association.
La Roux Trivia
Translated in English, La Roux means "red-haired one," aptly named for one of the founders Elly
Jackson, who is a ginger. Jackson discovered the name in a book of baby names.
