It's La Roux's "Uptight Downtown"

This is more like it. La Roux's official lead Trouble In Paradise single ("Let Me Down Gently" was just a buzz track) is "Uptight Downtown," and it's an absolute pop stunner. Elly's got a bit of her old "In For The Kill" voice happening here, and the music sounds like English Beat meets Bruno Mars meets something else fresh we somehow haven't quite heard before.

Good shit.
