La Roux SupervisionAt just eight tracks, you could mistake Supervision for being unsubstantial. But it would be a mistake.

La Roux’s third album is a perfectly considered slice of synth-pop that shines on Elly Jackson’s strengths, revisiting the more prominent disco influences which came to bear on 2014’s Trouble In Paradise (most prominently on International Woman of Leisure and Otherside) alongside the glacial melodies which have become her trademark.

Throughout, Jackson – on her first record completely solo – struts as boldly as ever over slinky self-affirmation (Do You Feel) and breezy tropical pop (Everything I Live For). It’s a welcome return.

Supervision by La Roux is out February 7 via Supercolour Records.
