A 24-year-old Blackpool lass (aka Victoria Hesketh) who is shaping up to be 2009's big pop breakthrough. Popjustice.com has called her "the pop star we've all been waiting for for years and years and years". [Guardian]
Little Boots played to "an anxious and overdressed" crowd at the Tribeca Grand at midnight on Wednesday night (10/22) and, according to Chris, "they were not let down". Chris also added...
"Mixing beats on a brightly blinking Tenorion it definitely sounded as if Hot Chip has a new successor to their throne. What I feel makes her different, is, if you take away the tenori and the hype, she still knows how to make wonderful hooks and that voice is such a knockout."
OK, maybe Chris is getting carried away with the "successor" thing, but Joe Goddard from Hot Chip is producing her album, and she does do a mean "Ready for the Floor"...
