La Roux "Tropical Chancer"
Published Jun 09, 2014Perhaps dovetailing nicely into the title of La Roux's upcoming Trouble in Paradise, the UK singer has let loose an island-themed love cut from the set called "Tropical Chancer."
Though peppered with electro synths, the arrangement beneath La Roux's breezy calls wrangles an old-school, on-the-beat ska guitar plink and daiquiri-flavoured digitized steel drums into the mix. Despite the upbeat melody, La Roux delivers a questionable character sketch of an apparently phony chancer, noting how the dancer will "trade your love in for the things he's never seen" while never giving up his own for free.
