Little Boots - Little Boots EP
1. Stuck on Repeat (Edit)
2. Meddle (Tenorion Piano version)
3. Love Kills
Several synth-pop songbirds are tipped for big things this year, but Little Boots - a.k.a. Blackpool's Victoria Hesketh - could be the most exciting of the lot. She's geeky yet glamorous, smart but not too arty-farty and really loves a great pop tune. Head over to her YouTube page and you'll find her trilling along merrily to everything from Alphabeat's 'Boyfriend' to Miley Cyrus's 'See You Again'.
As this three-track taster EP shows, her own music is pretty ace too. 'Stuck On Repeat' is a hypnotic, quivering slice of electrodisco heaven, 'Meddle' finds her playing a Gameboy-like electro gadget called a "Tenori-On", and her cover of Freddie Mercury's 'Love Kills' sounds like a great lost Kylie single. Let's hope her debut album isn't too far off...www.digitalspy.co.uk
