    I La Roux. I've seen them twice now, once supporting Lily Allen when I didn't have a clue who they were and then a few weeks ago at Glastonbury and it was so busy you had to fight your way into the tent to see them. Bulletproof is the best song I've heard by them.

    Their album is AMAZING!

    I've been listening to "Tigerlily" non stop since the album came out.

    I was a bit surprised by the success of In For The Kill, as that had been my least favorite of all the songs i had heard, but its great they are getting recognized.

    I think their last album has some good songs, I like the sound.

    From Wikipedia:

    La Roux are a British electropop synth duo band made up of singer and synth player Elly Jackson, and co-writer and co-producer Ben Langmaid, with Jackson describing their respective roles as "very much a half and half sharing situation... not like a singer producer outfit", but also recognising that it often can "look like a solo act".
    I can't get enough of this album!

    Ummmmmm.... I think she has the kind of voice you wouldn't want to listen to for long.

    I love them! Haven't heard the album yet though, I'm think I'm just going to wait for it to be released here in the states. I think it comes out in October.

    I've just ordered the album.
    I was shopping today and I heard 'Tigerlily' playing, and her voice is unmistakable really, so I did some YouTube research and discovered it
    Just been listening to the album on YouTube, I love what I hear; my only gripe would be that a lot of the songs have a very similar melody.
