La Roux – I’m Not Your Toy

by MV


The start of this video is pure comedy – Elly’s distinctive (and seemingly ever more HUGE) quiff poking up, inquisitively, out of some water. Entirely daft, and setting a good tone for the rest of the rather silly video.

It’s not their strongest single, all told, lacking the magnificent hysterics of the previous couple. For some, that may be an improvement – Elly’s vocals are certainly less grating – for me though this is a bit too tinny and inconsequential. More dramatic shrieking to go with the dramatic haircut entrances, please.
