La Roux Is ‘Uptight Downtown’

If you weren’t yet excited for La Roux’s sophomore album dropping later this summer, prepare yourself. The London-based group unveiled the record’s second single this week, Uptight Downtown, a funky and fabulous disco number that will leave you dancing in anticipation of the full tracklist.

The album debuted with Let Me Down Gently, a darker, more downtempo tune, but La Roux takes on a completely different sound in Uptight Downtown. Featuring a groovy bassline and plenty of retro synths topped off with the buttery smooth vocals of La Roux frontwoman Elly Jackson, this track definitely earned its title as BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World Right Now.

Uptight Downtown will be featured on Trouble In Paradise, the new album from La Roux releasing July 7. Preorder it on iTunes.
