Making their New York debut last night, October 27, 2009, British group LaRoux, played a sold out show at Manhattan’s Highline Ballroom. Musically, they have elements of early Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Human League and lead singer Elly Jackson’s voice is reminiscent of Tracey Thorn from Everything But The Girl.

Elly Jackson was recovering from a virus, so she apologized numerous times for performing such a short set, but she assured the crowd they’d be back in February.  Still, when LaRoux played hits such as “Quicksand,” “In For The Kill,” and “Bulletproof,” the crowd sang along to every word.  I personally think this band is going to be hugely successful and seeing them in a venue as small as the Highline Ballroom last night will definitely be one for the books.

A fun fact about the group:  LaRoux is French for “Redhead”

Elly Jackson: Going in for the kill.
