La Roux are an English electropop and synthpop duo formed in 2008 in London, England, UK, made up of singer/synth player Elly Jackson (born Eleanor Jackson in 12 March 1988) and co-writer/co-producer Ben Langmaid. Their music is largely influenced by 80s pop music including Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, The Human League, Heaven 17, Yazoo and Prince. The name La Roux (pronounced lah-roo) is reported to be chosen when Elly found it in a book of baby names. La Roux comes from the French for "red-haired one", referring to Jackson's distinctive hairstyle.
