Album review: Little Boots, Nocturnes (On Repeat)
Saturday 04 May 2013
Following the burden of hype placed upon the electro-pop singer’s debut, she’s gone low-key for this follow-up, self-releasing and adopting a clubbier, more crepuscular sound.
Which works extremely well, from the gliding ambience of “Motorway” to the straight-up piano house of “Every Night I Say a Prayer”. Only the more straightforwardly poppy numbers disappoint, with power-ballad manqué “Crescendo” a particular anomaly.
