La Roux is back! The band just made their return official by posting new music on their recently-opened Instagram account with the caption: “And so we begin…” This follows a fairly vague tweet of a new publicity still and a record label newsletter announcing the July 7 release date of much-anticipated sophomore set Trouble In Paradise.
The brief snippet of new music doesn’t give too much away. It’s a synth-heavy instrumental that points at a heavy retro-influence with perhaps a twist of space-disco. At the end of the clip you can hear frontwoman Elly Jackson say the word “silence”, which may or may not be the single title. Listen to the first taste of La Roux’s new music after the jump.
