La Roux debuted via a "Quicksand" remixes EP on Kitsuné back in late '08. Now look at them. "Bulletproof" is getting played hourly on just about every Podunk Top 40 station across the states, and it's still floating around the Billboard top 15 alongside Ke$ha and Katy Perry.

Pretty soon they'll be opening for (or even co-headlining with) Gaga and making further rounds on the talk show circuit.

Florrie is poised to be another potential UK pop sensation, perhaps the next link the La Roux/Ellie Goulding chain.
