La Roux's new vocal style
Elly Jackson will be using her voice differently on La Roux's second album.
The red-head singer - who is well known for singing in a high-pitched tone - said writing sessions have led her and her bandmate Ben Langmaid in a different direction to their debut LP.
She said: "The vocal style will be different, I've changed the way I sing, not on purpose, it's just happened. Seeing the things I can do with my voice I've learnt at a lot more about my voice.
"The type of music I like now is completely different. I don't listen to 80s music anymore... obviously I still do, but not the same type of 80s music anymore. I'm into a lot more Italo disco and old funk.
"The influences will be very different for the next record, but obviously there has to be elements of the first record."
Elly, 21, told BBC Newsbeat that she and Ben were "excited" about their second album.Posted on 21 Jan 2010 07:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
