Hot off the heels of her late 2011 release “Shake,” Little Boots continues on the 21st century throwback-forward pop sound with “Every Night I Say A Prayer” off her upcoming sophomore release.
Though next to no information on the record has come to surface, the music that’s been featured from it so far has been exquisite and smart pop music at it’s best. While the bulk of it is loud and contains the common four-to-the-floor dance beat, it’s gritty and contains down to Earth mixing styles that are a force to be reckoned with when so many contemporary artists seem to stick to glistening high-frequency vocals and autotuned monotony.
Victoria Hesketh does not stick to the book to many of today’s standards. Known to rock a mean Tenori-on while recording and on the stage, her vocals remain more stripped on the majority of tracks we hear from her and rely more on reverberation and experimental throwbacks to productions that are sometimes dynamically competitive, but more often than not shine through with authentic sonic passion and in an old-school/new-school interpolation.
We see this amalgamation in “Every Night I Say a Prayer” as Little Boots production soar with with experimental background effects and a rhythmic synthbass that plays a repetitive and funked out lead while it’s dated percussion samples thrive through the song.
From stripped down verses, to a full on commanding chorus structure this is a great way to continue ringing in the next era from one of England’s prized, underdog Pop stars.
