La Roux: 'Bulletproof'

La Roux: 'Bulletproof'
Released on Monday, Jun 22 2009

It usually pays to maintain at least a veneer of aloofness when reviewing a pop single, but on this occasion that would be pointless. Everything about 'Bulletproof' is brilliant. The kaleidoscopic video, which manages to look eighties and futuristic at the same time, is brilliant. The cover art, depicting Elly Jackson as a cool, quiff-rocking Bond villain, is brilliant too.

And the track itself? Well, it's a bright, bouncy slice of Yazoo-ish electropop with a chorus every bit as immediate as 'In For The Kill'. Jackson's vocals are less shrill this time around, but she comes off just as formidable, informing a useless sod who's messed her about that she won't be letting him do it again. (As if he'd dare.) If we had to summarise using a single word, you can guess which one we'd plump for.
