La Roux Quietly Go In For The Kill In Their VEVO Go Show

By: Erika Brooks Adickman / January 7, 2011

La Roux’s surprise Go Show in Manhattan slipped under our radar amid the December holidays, but it’s too lovely not to share. In what singer Elly Jackson describes as a “kind of classy but sleazy” rendition of their Grammy-nominated jam “In For The Kill“, the band slows down the tempo and strips away the synths (also, Kanye) to create a softer, chilled-out take — a drastic shift for a band that sometimes sounds tinny or, as Jackson says, “harsh”. Watch the band surprise a lucky lounge-ful of listeners below and r-e-l-a-x.

No wonder every random wannabe is dying to work with them.
