URGENT POP WARNING

We know there’s a lot of doom and gloom these days what with everybody running out of money and the entire population of the world immediately becoming tramps rummaging around in bins for scraps of discarded Pot Noodle but we feel it is only right to warn you that if Little Boots gets any better the planet might simply explode.
We’re not sure about you, but with all the substandard, will-this-do pop music thrown in our direction these days we’ve become so familiar with the feeling of trying to find the good in something that it’s a complete shock to the system to have, right in front of us, an artist where the real game is trying to find something bad. But there’s nothing. Little Boots is a totally bullet proof 21st century popstar. She writes and produces and performs. The stuff she writes and produces and performs is really incredibly brilliant: bright, sophisticated modern pop music full of hooks and tunes and exciting sounds and sonic tricks. She can pull the whole thing off live, combining the aforementioned brilliant pop music with a funny, likeable, stylish and confident stage presence. She was not exactly hit repeatedly around the head with the ugly stick. SHE HAS HORSES IN HER PROMO PICTURES. Some people think she’s cool enough to sit alongside your MGMTs and your Crystal Castles, but Little Boots finds the whole thing hilarious and, being as obsessed with pop music as we all are, enjoys spending her time knocking out irony-free Miley Cyrus and Haddaway covers on YouTube. This is Kylie and the Pet Shop Boys all in one person – the popstar we’ve all been waiting for for years and years and years.
2009 is going to be a big year for Little Boots but she’s out and about now – if you haven’t seen her live show yet do everything you can to sort it out. Dates and more bits on her MySpace…
