If you don’t get to talk to or see long distance friends very often, send each other love songs! Okay, you don’t have to compose them yourself, and they don’t really have to be about love, but sending an e-mail with an attached “Song of the Moment” is a great way to connect with those you miss! I am now part of a group started by one of my friends, so that every so often, we can send out tunes that are just too good to keep to ourselves!
This week, in addition to sending out an e-mail to the Song of the Moment crew, I’ve decided to share it with the ModLife community! Enter La Roux.
La Roux literally translates to the male version of “red-haired one,” which according to 21-year-old chanteuse Elly Jackson, “Is even cooler, because I’m androgynous anyway. So it kind of makes sense.” Check out the video above for her latest single, “I’m Not your Toy,” to see what she means first hand as her signature coif sprouts from still pools of water. English electro-synth pop duo Jackson and Ben Langmaid’s debut single Quicksand released in December 2008. Months later, on June 29, 2009, their self-titled album released in the UK with the single In For the Kill that topped charts at number two, and Bulletproof at number one.
What’s your take on the red-hot La Roux? Will you be adding “I’m Not Your Toy” to your Song of the Moment list?
