Listen: La Roux’s new song “Tropical Chancer”


    London synth-pop songstress Elly Jackson, a.k.a. La Roux, has unveiled the third track from her upcoming sophomore record, Trouble in Paradise, due out July 8th via Cherrytree/Interscope.

    Following “Let Me Down Gently” and “Uptight Downtown”, “Tropical Chancer” is, as its name might imply, inspired by the island music of calypso and dancehall. Here, Jackson’s more structured, disco-indebted vocals lend a sense of focus to the more unrestrained rhythms of ’70s funk bass and echoey steel drums. Either way, it makes me want to grab a piña colada and hit the beach pronto.
