{"key":"6148","name":"La Roux","bio":"La Roux is the electropop project of Elly Jackson (born 12 March 1988 in London, United Kingdom; singer and keyboardist). It started as a duo in 2008 and became a solo project in 2011, when Jackson's songwriting and producing partner Ben Langmaid left the group. Her 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 mix of the French masculine word for \"redhead\" and the feminine article for \"the\", referring to Jackson's distinctive hairstyle.In 2006 Jackson and Langmaid were introduced by a mutual friend. Their first project was named Automan and they wrote largely acoustic music.In 15 December 2008, La Roux released their first single \"Quicksand\" on Kitsun\u00e9 Music label, reaching just #129 on UK. This single was followed on 29 June 2009 by their debut album La Roux on Polydor label. The album peaked at #2 on UK albums chart, #158 on US charts, and it sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.La Roux' second single \"In For the Kill\" was released on 16 March 2009.

Lifelike also made a remix entitled \"In for the Kill (Lifelike Remix)\".\"Bulletproof\" was released on 22 June 2009 and debuted at #1 on the UK singles chart and peaked at #8 on the US charts. This single was ranked #25 on Rolling Stone's list of The 25 Best Songs of 2009. They issued \"I'm Not Your Toy\" as fourth single on 27 September 2009, reaching #27 on the UK singles chart.La Roux gained fifth position on the BBC's Sound of 2009 poll.

{"key":"9489","name":"Metronomy","bio":"Metronomy is an electropop group which formed in 1999 in Totnes, Devon, United Kingdom, originally as the solo project of Joseph Mount. The project later expanded into a full band, which currently consists of Joseph Mount (vocals, keyboards, guitar), Oscar Cash (keyboards, saxophone, vocals), Gbenga Adelekan (bass, vocals) and Anna Prior (drums, vocals). The band has released four albums: \"Pip Paine (Pay The \u00a35000 You Owe)\" (2006), \"Nights Out\" (2008), \"The English Riviera\" (2011), and \"Love Letters\" (2014).Metronomy began in the tiny, bohemian market town of Totnes, Devon, when Joseph\u2019s Dad sold his son a computer so he could sit in his bedroom and make electronic music. He was inspired by the likes of Autechre, LFO and Aphex Twin, more as a creative hobby than a pop masterplan.After decamping to Brighton for Uni, Metronomy released their debut album in June 2006. It was called Pip Paine (Pay The \u00a35000 You Owe), and its obtuse but fascinating, largely instrumental electro-pop reflected the eccentricity of its title, and the enduring influence of Totnes.Joseph admits that he only, finally, saw the commercial possibilities of Metronomy when DJ, producer, Trash founder and electro-punk avatar Erol Alkan began to feature the single You Could Easily Have Me in his sets, and asked Metronomy to play at his club. Cue the need for a proper live show, and the additions of Gabriel Stebbing, Oscar Cash, dance routines and clothes that blink. Move on 2 years and Nights Out a wonky love-child of Giorgio Moroder, New Order, Pet Shop Boys and Unfinished Sympathy is a second album that feels like a debut. The first to be vocal-led, with the self-effacing Joseph stepping up and grabbing the mic for most of the tracks; and, crucially, the first to introduce Metronomy as a fully live propsition, rather than a pseudonym for Joseph\u2018s solo work. As Metronomy\u2019s busy touring schedule built a buzz amongst kids who instinctively get the dance\/art crossover, In April 2009 the Metronomy show took another leap in its evolution, with the addition for the first time of a live drummer in Anna Prior, and bassist Gbenga Adelekan. The new Metronomy was completely live, proving it is possible for electronic bands to put on show as authentic as any rock band. Meanwhile Joseph has embarked on a series of prestigious remixes for the likes of Klaxons, Franz Ferdinand, Gorillaz and collaborations with Kate Nash and Florence and The Machine. Metronomy produced part of the highly acclaimed Roots Manuva album Slime and Reason.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/9489_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"603","name":"Friendly Fires","bio":"Friendly Fires are an indie band formed in 2006 in St Albans, United Kingdom. They consist of Ed MacFarlane (vocals), Edd Gibson (guitar) and Jack Savidge (drums). The band released their self-titled debut album on 1 September 2008. It contains the singles \"Paris\", \"Jump in the Pool\", and \"Skeleton Boy\". The band's second album, \"Pala\", was released on 16 May 2011. According to the Pala Songfacts, the title Pala is a reference to the doomed utopia of English writer Aldous Huxley's novel Island. Published in 1962, it is the account of Will Farnaby, a cynical journalist who is shipwrecked on the fictional island of Pala, where parrots whisper uplifting messages to the islanders.Formed out of the ashes of First Day Back, the St Albans, United Kingdom hardcore band they formed while still at school, Friendly Fires make razor-sharp post-punk that burns through the memories of all the dismal, skinny jeaned \u201880s revivalists you\u2019ve been hearing these past few years. Sounding brittle, knotty and urgent, Friendly Fires are the real deal. With no fat or padding on them at all, their songs possess an elegant sparseness. As guitarist Edd Gibson notes: \u201cThe hardest thing I think is to know what to leave out, to know when something is enough.\u201d But amongst all the stripped-back twists, there are also moments full of deep, blissed-out melodies. \u201cI love lush, massive, tingly chords; the My Bloody Valentine sound,\u201d says bassist and singer Ed MacFarlane.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/603_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"9483","name":"Bibio","bio":"Bibio is Stephen James Wilkinson from Wolverhampton, England. Wilkinson studied 'Sonic Arts' between 1999 - 2002 at Middlesex University in North London, it was during this time in London he came up with the name Bibio. The name was taken from a small black and red fishing fly which was favoured by his father on their fishing trips to Wales during Stephen's childhood, the name therefore has nostalgic meaning which is often a theme in his music. His recording career as Bibio started with Mush records in 2004. His Mush releases consist of 3 albums and 1 EP. In 2009 he signed to Warp records and so far has released a further 2 albums, an EP containing remix contributions from other artists and several singles. Bibio's music combines electronic and acoustic\/traditional instruments, his main instrument being guitar. Bibio's signature 'grainy' sound is partly due to the use of analogue tape and vintage recording equipment, which is more exaggerated in his earlier Mush releases. Wilkinson himself labeled his debut on Mush as \"Saturated Folk\". Bibio's recent output, particularly on Warp, has been more diverse, with an increasing use of his own vocals, drums\/beats and electronics. His Mush debut 'Fi' was described by Marcus Eoin of Boards of Canada as: \"The antidote to the modern laptopia of pristine electronic music\u2026\". In 2009, Bibio contributed a cover version of Boards of Canada's 'Kaini Industries' to the Warp 20th Anniversary 'Recreated' album.","featuredImage":"https:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/9483_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}
