Premiere: La Roux – “Let Me Down Gently” [Official Video]

La Roux unveils the official video for “Let Me Down Gently” the first single taken from the highly anticipated sophomore album, Trouble In Paradise  out on July 7.

Directed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, the video finds lady Roux on a chair, dressed in all black surrounded by stark, grey walls as she emotionally pleads for a less painful, amorous resolution. The video is simple, effective and emotionally raw. Watch!

Premiere: La Roux – “Let Me Down Gently” [New Single!]

Five years since their self-titled debut album, synthpop duo La Roux returns with a somber and melodic new number called, ‘Let Me Down Gently.’ The track is taken from La Roux’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Trouble In Paradise  expected to drop July 7.  For a comeback single, ‘Let Me Down Gently’ doesn’t necessarily have that instant, addictive affect that ‘In For The Kill’ or ‘Bulletproof’ had in 2009-2010; but after a few listens you’ll find that it’s strength lies in it’s effortless, simmering production and in Elly Jackson’s disarming vocals. We love it!
