La Roux Tracks and Tour Dates

La Roux

With only a few surfaced tracks to her name, UK newcomer La Roux is quickly amassing a sizable fan base. Her exquisite sneak-attack single, "Quicksand," dropped last month and forced many-a-blogger to make an important last-minute adjustment to his/her end-of-year list.

She's well on her way to becoming the new over-blogged-about female artist around these parts (à la M.I.A. and Róisín). If only we knew more about her. There are a few interviews floating around but none are particularly engaging or informative. But luckily, we've managed to dig up the following information:

She'll tour with Lily Allen in March (UK dates only). Her next single should drop early next month. And her album on Polydor should see a June release. (Of course, there's plenty of time between now and June for delays and setbacks, so we'll take that date with a grain of salt.)

Here are three tracks to cement my obsession:

"In for the Kill"
THIS SONG ON THE HYPE MACHINE! / SAVE IT ON DELICIOUS!

"Reflections Are Protection"
THIS SONG ON THE HYPE MACHINE! / SAVE IT ON DELICIOUS!

"Quicksand (Joe and Will Ask? Remix)"
THIS SONG ON THE HYPE MACHINE! / SAVE IT ON DELICIOUS!

Buy the "Quicksand" EP off Amazon ($3.56), iTunes ($4.95), or Other Music ($3.99).

I have to say I think La Roux tops MIA, there's a bit more of an edge, I may even HAVE to go see Lily Allen in the Academy just to see La Roux
