la roux + chateau marmont.


la roux is back and she brought chateau marmont with her. no, not the famous hotel in hollywood where lindsay lohan used to late night party in, but the four man parisian group that are getting ready to release their latest ep on a sublabel of institubes. they must be becoming the hometown heroes because in addition to the ep release, they are also working on remixes for kitsune (this track and one for heartsrevolution) and modular (ladyhawke).

well they certainly show off their production talents in this track as they slow down the beat and give it a bit of a cosmic feel, all the while showcasing la roux's vocals like a diamond ring in a tiffany's display window.
