La Roux are an English electropop and synthpop duo made up of singer, keyboardist, co-writer and co-producer Eleanor Kate Jackson (born 12 March 1988), and keyboardist, co-writer and co-producer Ben Langmaid. Jackson describes their respective roles as "very much a half and half sharing situation... not like a singer producer outfit", but also recognizing that it often can "look like a solo act"
"In for the Kill" is a song by the English electropop duo La Roux from their debut album, La Roux (2009). It was released as the album's second single in the United Kingdom on 16 March 2009, peaking inside the top ten in the UK. The song is heavily influenced by the title theme of the '80s cartoon classic Pole Position, with even the video paying homage to the show. La Roux singer Elly Jackson told Steve Harris of Xfm radio that the song is "about telling someone how you feel regardless of what you get back, and not waiting to find out if they want you or not."
