Coming off an impressive set this summer at Osheaga and a sold out show earlier this winter, British duo La Roux has wowed Montreal audiences in this their breakout year. The electropop duo have once again sold out this show demonstrating that this town has not grown sick of them and that due to word of mouth they keep booking and selling out bigger venues.
If you are a fan of 80s synthesizer pop a la Human League or Erasure then La Roux is a duo you should discover. Eleanor Jackson (vocals) and Ben Langmaid (keyboards/producer) record all the music together as a 50-50 outfit, but it is just the androgynous Jackson who hits the road to perform live.
With their debut release, "La Roux", coming out in 2009 they burst onto the scene as a retro sounding band that caught on immediately. Their singles "Bulletproof" and "In For the Kill" have been huge hits for them. Nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize in their native England they have definitely become one of the breakout acts of 2009.
