With the release of her new album just a month away, Elly Jackson aka La Roux debuts another glorious new track off the album titled “Tropical Chancer“! The song serves as an exclusive iTunes countdown single off her upcoming sophomore album Trouble in Paradise, which is scheduled for release on July 7 via Interscope and Polydor Records. Following buzz track “Let Me Down Gently” and lead single “Uptight Downtown“, “Tropical Chancer” is, as its name appropriately suggests, inspired by the island music of reggae and dancehall with its smooth drum work and bouncy guitar riff that sounds a little similar to Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Production similarity aside, the track undeniably still sounds fresh and I love Elly‘s vocal. I need to hit the beach pronto with a fresh cocktail in hand. What do you guys think?
