I am a bit obsessed with this song at the moment. heh heh.

Maybe because it reminds me of being in Turkey and watching Euro Pop videos (love that!). I have a *thing* for quirky, off-beat pop. And I cannot deny the enormous desire to DANCE MY ASS OFF when this song comes on!! Plus, I was born in the 80s, so I gotta love this 80s sound :D

I must look into this artist; I'm sure of you already know her...

LA ROUX 'BULLETPROOF' from soyo on Vimeo.

*and I was just reading up that this is a duo act, actually. One that sings, one that does the synthesizing.


  1. crrrraaaaaaazzzyyyy. it's like one of those things that i'm not supposed to like, but then *synthesizer bleep bloop swing* (that's all i'm saying).

  2. Hee hee. I like it, Ash! It's weird, but catchy. And she has a good voice.

    Funny how she's so stiff and barely dances, but I think that's part of the whole gimmick. I think I saw her start to bob her head once, and then she stopped herself.


  3. Yeah, the stiffness is totally part of her act, you're right. She's trying to put on a tough face, maybe?

  4. I totally forgot that you guys probably won't know La Roux, or at least that she's only just starting to break out into the US. How about Paloma Faith or Florence + The Machine? Ash I think you'd be totally into both of them. I plan on busting out some Paloma Faith at karaoke when I'm in Portland in April! You should listen to 'Upside Down' (PF) and 'You Got The Love' (F+TM).
