Victoria Hesketh aka Little Boots
is carving out a place for herself in the US pop music scene. A charted synth composer, DJ, and artist in her own right in her native UK, her enchanting lounge pop is seeping into US soil. Her forthcoming EP, the bubblegum synth washed Business Pleasure
, is due out December 1st. The record includes production collaborations with Com Truise, Peter Wade, and Jas Shaw (Simian Mobile Disco).
This morning Little Boots released two new tracks: "Pretty Tough," a chill vibration that's hot to the touch, and the melancholic slow burner "Heroine." The 90s cadence that sets Little Boots apart from her contemporaries, all of whom are pulling inspiration from the weirdest mash-up of a decade yet, is her reappropriation of the soundscape trance pop hits that ruled late night radio, and filtered into the mega mainstream. Take the floating trance of Ultra Nate's "If You Could Read My Mind," pull out the disco, and rub it with Dirty Vegas' "Days Go By."
