A fine return from the former chart-topper, the latest album from La Roux comes after many personal and professional changes but no lessened grasp of an inspiring Pop hook. Filled with 80s and 90s Pop textures, ‘Supervision’ is an open and expansive album that takes its time to fully unfold. ‘Automatic Driver’ takes a steady pace, a solid Soul bass line and a dynamic Pop vocal line and packages it up in the distant glow of 90s R&B. Elsewhere, ‘Gullible Fool’ matches an 80s Disco Soul piano with musical theatre vocals, before fat bass and springing chords join in. It’s a building ballad that acts as a cathartic ending to the entire album. This may not be a global hit like La Roux’s debut, but few manage to make Pop sound so accessible while still uniquely their own. Check it out.
