It’s not “Bulletproof”, but La Roux’s new single “Let Me Down Gently” is much better than I think most of us might’ve expected. I don’t envy Elly Jackson and the weight of trying to live up to the fervor and brilliance of her self titled debut. The pressure must have been like her own mini World Cup qualification. Now with the release of “Let Me Down Gently” she’s made it to Brazil and it’s time to put it all on the line.
The new single is a few degrees cooler than the previous La Roux hits, beginning as a ballad and shifting into a thrill-inducing electro-dance track. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I’m eagerly waiting for Trouble in Paradise.
