La Roux Keeps It Simple In Moody “Let Me Down Gently” Video: Watch

La Roux made a rather subdued return to the music scene with languid synth-ballad “Let Me Down Gently”. The sparse but sprawling anthem was soon relegated to buzz track status but that hasn’t stopped the duo filming a suitably moody video starring frontwoman Elly Jackson, her amazing red hair and a rather lovely sunrise.

The video is fairly simple. It begins with Elly emoting in a dark room (she does anguish surprisingly well) before fleeing outside when the synths finally kick in around the two and a half minute mark. The diva runs then through a field and soaks up the sun. It’s stylish and understated. In other words, a tidy start to the band’s Trouble In Paradise campaign. Watch up top.
