Listen: La Roux – ‘Uptight Downtown’

Look basically 'Let Me Down Gently' was not a single even thought it could have been, 'Uptight Downtown' is a single, it's great, it has a splendid groove factor with nods to David Bowie's 'Let's Dance' while still sticking to La Roux's splendid electronic pop 'blueprint', structurally it follows about twelve of the most important rules of whacking a pop song together, it sounds completely relaxed but brilliantly ambitious, its instant appeal not only stands up to repeated listening but actually benefits from it, and there's a bit about temperature rising JUST IN TIME FOR THE SUMMER.

A triumph.
