Little Boots drops her pop charm on sophomore album Nocturnes, leaving the charts behind for creative freedom.

Little Boots

Her 10-track sophomore album consists of dance music and electro-house compared to the commercially viable pop on 2009’s Hands.

Victoria Hesketh (now 29) has matured, especially on the darker, ethereal opening tracks like "Motorway".

'Confusion' has a funk vibe with cleaner piano, opposed to the synthesizers she's often associated with.

At times Little Boots' latest offering is a work of electronic art.

Take the fourth track 'Shake', every DJ would be proud of playing this along with the rhythmic “Every Night I Say a Prayer”.

 

Nocturnes is self-released and features production from Tim Goldsworthy of DFA Records.

She has managed to create a danceable electronic album with tracks that are a cut above the production heavy and creatively shallow Hands.
