Hype Music // La Roux Uptight Downtown

Hypest Song of the Month // La Roux Uptight Downtown

If you’re still looking for a perfect summer tune apart from Kiesza’s über-smash Hideaway, you might be happy with La Roux’ newest single Uptight Downtown, just having been released with her comeback album Trouble in Paradise. On the whole, Uptight Downtown sees singer/songwriter Ellie Jackson putting her stamp on 70s disco sounds rather than citing 80s synth-pop she became popular for with La Roux’ well-acclaimed debut album five years ago. Make a decision, whether the new Jackson looks like David Bowie or Duran Duran’s young Nick Rhodes – it becomes a lot easier when you discover certain similarities to Bowie’s Let’s Dance in Uptight Downtown.
