La Roux - In For the Kill
LA ROUX | Myspace Music Videos
La Roux's latest video is about pimps, ladies of the night, hairspray, product placement (Belvedere vodka), room service and La Roux singing as high as she possibly can in a charismatic nouveau-Eurythmics bid while roaming around the Hotel Chelsea. In short, awesome. This is La Roux's second single following summer's "Bulletproof," and the video was directed by LEGS, who also did Golfrapp's recent video for "Alive." La Roux is touring the U.S. this fall with support from Francis and the Lights and Far East Movement.
