TRACK OF THE WEEK: Let Me Down Gen­tly by La Roux Five years af­ter their de­but al­bum, it’s only bloody come back on the scene. Let Me Down Gen­tly isn’t a banger like Bul­let­proof or In For The Kill – it’s very much an end-of-the-night vibe. Singing like an An­nie Len­nox who is wip­ing her smudged eyes in the bath­room mir­ror, Elly La Roux in­tones “I hope it doesn’t seem like I’m young fool­ish and green”, be­fore im­plor­ing her lover to let her down gen­tly. There’s a slinky synth, and cru­cially, a fake pause mid­way through the track, be­fore it all takes off. Oh! And there’s a sax­o­phone.

Bran­don Alvis (for it is he) gave his ex­pert opion: “From my anal­y­sis I can’t 100 per cent say that the ‘ghostly face’ is a spirit. One thing to note is if Demi Lo­vato is a ghost hunt­ing en­thu­si­ast and claims to have a strong con­nec­tion with the af­ter­life, it is very pos­si­ble that a ghost or spirit could be at­tached to her be­cause of her pre­vi­ous at­tempts at com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the dead.” Neon Lights? More like Neon Frights! (Don’t worry, we’ll show our­selves out.)

Boo ya: Demi Lo­vato is pho­to­bombed by a ghost
