Already superstars in their native UK with hits like “In For The Kill” and current single “Bulletproof,” La Roux (who are 21-year-old Elly Jackson and collaborator Ben Langmaid) is poised to make quite an impact in the States upon the release of their eponymous album’s bow on September 29th via Cherrytree Records.
