David Knight - 3rd Dec 2008

We've seen any number of Eighties pastiches and Eighties-influenced videos for the new generation of highly cool ironic pop acts - but Kinga Burza's new video for La Roux has the power to actually render a person speechless with its awesome 80s-ness.

La Roux sounds like Ladyhawke, but she has Le Bon's hair. Or quite possibly Nick Rhodes's. Yes, this is Rio and an Athena poster and possibly every video shown in the first year of MTV, all rolled into one. Plus Bond girl gymnasts. And a parrot.

How awesome is that
