LITTLE BOOTS
LITTLE BOOTS
‘Business Pleasure’ is the new EP from Little Boots (aka Victoria Hesketh), the first taste of her forthcoming third album, and maybe the most candid, powerful release she’s made to date. Channelling the posturing and paranoia of inner-city tension in 2014 into a manifesto of perfect ‘DIY pop’ and ‘narrative house’, taking influence from late Nineties Everything But The Girl (“when house music told stories…”), spooked Noughties R&B a la Lumidee and Cassie, and the rawness of breaking producers like SOPHIE, she’s refined a formula of the most legit leftfield electronic production set against her trademark haunting pure-pop melodies. With a little help from the likes of Com Truise, Simian Mobile Disco’s Jas Shaw, Pete Wade of MNDR and John Beck, the man behind Joe Goddard’s ‘Gabriel’, she’s crafted a visceral world of stories, hooks and beats, that you might call confessional, if it wasn’t so damn catchy.

Hailing from Cologne, Roosevelt blends Balearic haze with his hometown’s trademark electronica to make loved-up guitar pop; his debut solo release ‘Sea’ playfully conjuring up images of long fading summers with its dubbed out guitars, rolling bass and longing vocals.
GEMS
GEMS
The Washington, DC, duo GEMS, comprised of Lindsay Pitts and Clifford John, have developed their own brand of intoxicating, cinematic dream-pop that is deeply heartbreaking and romantic. The duo weaves a dark web of intimate male and female vocals, hazy guitars and lush synthesizers. Their songs are tragic, haunting, and tinged with melancholy and existential longing.
