La Roux is the name adopted by Elly Jackson, the synthy, '80s, superslick singer who is releasing 'Quicksand' possibly the best pop anthem of the winter on the 15th.
The video features her in full-on '80s mode, singing against a backdrop of impossibly cheesy sunsets, fancy cocktails and pineapples. She sports a great white jacket accessorised with a gold chain and leopard print scarf, and with that Tilda Swinton-esque mop of red hair and pale surely a fashion inspiration to us all? Watch her video after the jump, courtesy of My Chemical Toilet.
