Footage of La Roux performing their new track 'Tropical Chancer' has surfaced online - scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

The song was one of four debuted by the synthpop duo of Elly Jackson and producer Ben Langmaid at their show at Brighton Concorde 2 earlier this week (March 28), when they played their first show in almost two years. During the gig, which was the first of three warm-up dates before this year's Coachella festival and saw Jackson joined by a new backing band, they also premiered 'Uptight Downtown', 'Sexoteque' and 'Kiss And Not Tell'.

La Roux released their self-titled debut album in 2009 and, after a lengthy wait, are set to deliver the follow-up later this year. Speaking about the delay to NME earlier this year, Jackson said: "I realised the album I wanted to make would require me being a much better musician than I was. There's been a lot of learning and it's been fun and I didn't want it to stop, basically.

"I'm not one for describing how the songs sound, but to me it sounds great, obviously, or I wouldn't have spent this much time making it," she added.

La Roux are set to play two further shows on their current mini-run of gigs. They will play:

Bristol, The Fleece (April 2)
Coventry, Kasbah (5)
