If you enjoy music and especially music that is not afraid to explore new creative boundaries, than La Roux and her new video In For the Kill is definitely for you.
The video was directed by LEGS (Goldfrapp’s “Alive”) and shot at the historic and legendary Hotel Chelsea in NYC. Here, artists such as Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Dylan Thomas and Sid Vicious have all performed very memorable sets. The video is a dark and lusciously rich view into the hotel’s seedy underbelly through the eyes of La Roux’s Elly Jackson who finds herself acting the part of night porter.
In case you are unaware about the artist, La Roux has caught America’s attention with the smash hit of the summer “Bulletproof,” their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut as well as a thrilling performance on Ellen and Good Morning America. The band is also going on a national headlining tour (dates below) this fall with Far East Movement and Francis and the Lights.
