You remember Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, right? Last Friday, she released a new EP, ‘Burn’, described on the press release as “claiming a darker, more atmospheric territory while retaining her signature pop sensibilities”. Hmm. Doesn’t that translate to “less of a dance banger”? There is certainly a iciness to ‘Picture’ featuring Detroit’s own Lauren Flax. ‘da Boots says of ‘Picture’:

It is about that moment when you think you’ve moved on from someone, then some algorithm or friend of friend you follow brings up a photo that can instantly drag you back in a heartbeat. It explores our relationship between technology and our powerlessness over the effect it can have on our emotions and mood. I collaborated with Lauren Flax on the track and love the way she built the beat, we sent instrumental parts back and forwards adding piano and strings until the track swells into a really lush hybrid of electronics and organics, all driven by a pulsing house beat and topped off with pop melodies.

It’s important to note that during this period of female empowerment in the music industry that this EP was released without a major label and collaborations only with female and femme producers. As Flax writes on Facebook, “@littlebootsmusic released this EP without a major label backing, with collaborations by only female and femme producers that debuted at #1 in America, the UK and Canada. We don’t need ghost producers. If you truly want to be in control of your world, your career and your future well being, take the time and learn your craft, be well to those around you and support other women. I hope this inspires girls and young women to do the same.” Well said! Check out ‘Picture’ below. For past coverage here on TGTF on Little Boots, use this link.
