I wasn’t sure what to expect when I hit play on this new song by Little Boots. For some reason or the other I was anticipating that it’d lean the harder electronic direction of Dragonette, but fortunately I was completely wrong.
“Motorway” is the opening track of Little Boots’ just-announced album Nocturnes, which will be released some time in May. It’s a great track, showcasing how well Hesketh’s impeccable vocals interact with layered and unoffensive electronic instrumentation.
This is definitely my preferred take in “electro pop.”
