Album Info

  • Label: On Repeat
5 / 10 Little Boots tramped everywhere back in 2009 promoting her debut album, ‘Hands’. But despite shedloads of hype, Ms Boots, aka Blackpool’s Victoria Hesketh, was just too awkward to be a pop star. Four years later, she’s found her feet by starting her own label and doing things her own way. Album two features some catchy and classy electronic dance music: ‘Motorway’ draws from Italo-disco and the brilliant ‘Crescendo’ seems influenced by the unlikely combo of Giorgio Moroder and Natalie Imbruglia. Unfortunately though, ‘Broken Record’ sounds like a Eurovision-endorsed soundtrack to Cassack dancing and ‘Satellites’ is a limp version of Madonna’s ‘Ray Of Light’. Dodgy.
