|Diggin' the Debbie Harry-style do|
Little Boots is back for good! After releasing the club bangers "Shake" and "I Wish" in late 2011, the English electropop goddess has released yet another gem, "Every Night I Say A Prayer", a Moroder-esque synth-disco number showcasing a sleek, more mature production, along with Boots' coyly seductive vocals which easily recall Kylie Minogue (a major influence on Boots' work). With chanting diva hook-lines and pristine synths, the song – a collaboration with Andy Butler of New York underground disco group Hercules and Love Affair – is best suited for late-night lounging at some upscale club in Europe.
|SO DAMN PRETTY. Notice the Flo and Karen O posters behind her!|
Best of all, the track is available as a free download on Boots' official SoundCloud page. Yes, you heard me – IT'S FREE!! What you waiting for?? Personally, I prefer the remix by German DJ Tensnake, which ups the tempo to reveal a more urgent, straight-up '80s-influenced sound that is fully intended for the dancefloor. A 12" vinyl limited to 500 copies was released in conjunction with Record Store Day last Saturday (04/21), when Boots also performed a short live set at London's Rough Trade East to support the launch. (Why don't I live in London?? WHY?!!) Gawd, I really hope a second album is in the making, the wait is killin' me.
Oh, and for those of you who live in London (again, WHY), make sure you don't miss Boots' gig at XOYO on May 4 (coinciding with her b'day), with support from up-and-coming synth-funkster Ronika!
It's wonderful to have you back, Bootsie.
Now, here's a little something to brighten your Monday:
