NEW MUSIC: LITTLE BOOTS - "MOTORWAY" (POP, UK)
It has been a long four years since Little Boots first exploded onto the music scene with her debut album "Hands" which Spearheaded the trend for glittery intelligent pop championed by the likes of Ellie Goulding and La Roux. However, music moved on to pastures new and Victoria Hesketh started work on her follow up collection as a result. Having teased fans with tracks such as "Shake", the London based starlet has been remoulding her sound into a tighter audible package. The reverberating bass and twinkling digitalised regalia have been eroded away to reveal a delightfully minimalist vein of sound that Little Boots perfects so well. "Motorway" is the epitomisation of efficiency and about delivering the right elements at the right tempo; gently oscillating basslines launch this track along and create a fantastic vision of joining a motorway whilst building speed. Italo twitch-scapes pulse excitedly between futuristic synth ruffles and grandiose key perforations; a style not too dissimilar to TEED. The gradual threading together of musical elements generates a reactive mix of dance undulations that compliment the feathered purrs of Hesketh and her lyrical tribulations. "Motorway" is what we have been waiting for from Little Boots; a brilliantly simple track devoid of material extras and straight to the point. With collaborative help from Simian Mobile Disco and Hercules And Love Affair on the forthcoming album "Nocturnes", it promises a lot from the young musician.
