When Victoria Hesketh came to CMJ last year with her Tenori-on and “Stuck On Repeat” being just that for bloggers seeking a new pop fix, she was a “must see” that wound up in the “promising but in progress” department. By SXSW she had BBC’s breakout stamp and peoples were all like She Is Ready. (I missed her so can’t corroborate.) The first video from her forthcoming debut LP Hands, for the thoroughly remixed “New In Town,” seems designed to convince you of that burgeoning swagger, Little Boots in a little blue frock strolling through fully choreographed urban environs. Looks dangerous.

Not at Robyn/Annie level yet, but getting there. The Hands LP is out as a UK-only release on 6/9 via Atlantic. That same day the US will get a new Little Boots EP titled Illuminations featuring “New In Town,” “Stuck On Repeat,” and some covers/previously unreleased bonus stuff. New Yorkers, she’ll be at Le Poisson Rouge soon.

  1. Little Boots be down with the brothas.

  2. hey, that’s not so bad… a little too poppy for my taste but it’s nice.

    I think she’s getting kind of lost by what’s going on around her. I thought that at SXSW Perez Hilton party too. Also is it just me or does she look like Avril Lavigne and Lady Sovereign had a baby?

  4. she’s cute but the song and video sucked pretty bad.

  5. the video does not suit the song at all

    Liked it well enough. Poppy is not necessarily a bad thing. I’m calling it Goldfrapp Light.

    while she does have a couple of okay songs, i still think she’s taken everybody in:
    she seems a little too obvious and definitely not as clever as robyn, m.i.a., santi, etc.

    am i the only one who thinks her lolita-expression has something dull about it?

    She had potential but this is not a good move. Her independence (genuine or manufactured it may be) was what made her interesting and she’s already starting to churn out blandness
