Little Boots – New In Town

by MV


If I’d come to this not having heard anything else by Vicky Boots, I’d have been a tad perplexed at the inescapable hype surrounding her. While there are probably only about three people in the country yet to have heard of her, you’d have to assume there are a fair few more who haven’t bothered seeking out the majestic Stuck On Repeat or the pleasingly bouncy Meddle. New in Town is a bit middling by comparison. There are some nice little moments, and yr lady is wearing a pretty stunning shiny blue number in the vid, but it’s not earth-shattering. Considerably better is the Fred Falke remix, which pushes the buttons marked ‘epic’ and ‘proper pop’ and lifts the original’s mannered stylings off to somewhere altogether more inspiring.
