Artist

Little Boots

Little Boots formed in 2007 as a solo vehicle for Victoria Hesketh, the ex-lead singer/keyboardist of English dance-pop outfit Dead Disco.

Hesketh's first single under the new pseudonym was "Stuck on Repeat," an infectious club hit produced by Hot Chip's Joe Goddard that arrived on limited-edition 12" white-label vinyl. Released in early 2008, it was followed in August by the limited-edition 7" "Meddle," again produced by Goddard with help from Greg Kurstin of the Bird and the Bee. Little Boots' full-length debut, Hands, arrived in 2009 and peaked at number five on the U.K. Albums Chart. It was followed later in the year by the Illuminations EP. Hands arrived in the United States on March 2, 2010 and she embarked on a U.S. tour -- including an appearance at Coachella -- to promote the album Stateside. In 2011, she put out a mixtape entitled Shake Until Your Heart Breaks and took to DJing the material at clubs worldwide, and a year later another mixtape, Into the Future, appeared. Hesketh's second full-length record Nocturnes, was released in 2013 and featured production from a host of guests, including Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford and Hercules & Love Affair's Andy Butler. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
