La Roux: Together In Electric Dreams

Scott McLennan, Rip It Up (Australia), July 2009

ELLY JACKSON is lying under her duvet in the same bedroom she's occupied since birth, but recently something feels different. The David Bowie albums are still on the mantelpiece, the special cape from her childhood dress-up box is in the drawer and her mother, former star of The Bill Trudie Goodwin, is at the other end of the Herne Hill home. So what's changed? Perhaps it's the fact that the 21-year-old sleepyhead's duo La Roux have just hit number two in the UK chart with second single 'In For The Kill'.
