La Roux's Elly Jackson has said that her vocal style will be different on the band's second record compared to the duo's 2009 self-titled debut.

The singer said that writing sessions with Ben Langmaid, the other half of the band, were well underway. She added that the new material would see them move away from their trademark '80s-influenced pop sound.

"The vocal style will be different I've changed the way I sing, not on purpose, it's just happened," she told BBC Newsbeat.

"The type of music I like now is completely different. I don't listen to '80s music anymore… obviously I still do, but not the same type of '80s music anymore. I'm into a lot more Italo disco and old funk."

She explained that she and Langmaid were enjoying writing sessions between live commitments.

"All of our focus is on the second album now," she said. "We've already started writing it. We've got this week together next week together… then two more weeks in April. We're trying to bang it out at the moment."
