Little Boots // Every Night I Say a Prayer
“Every Night I Say a Prayer” is the latest single from everyone’s favourite nonchalant popstar Little Boots. After releasing “Shake” last year, the small footed singer has released this new song for Record Store Day 2012. There aren’t many record shops about anymore, so if anyone knows of any good ones in Belfast let me know.
Enough of my desperation to find a good place to buy music, let’s talk about Victoria’s new track. With a a slight house bassline, the song starts off cold and pensive, before the 90s house influences really kick in with a bouncy piano melody. Mixing the past with the sophisticated electronica of today, the singer has created a pop song which manages to be both sophisticated and restrained, yet zany with it’s big pop chorus.
With enough hooks to reel you in for another listen, “Every Night I Say a Prayer” is better than most of the material on the good, but patchy “Hands”. Hopefully this is the last of these low key releases from Ms Hesketh, and we’ll get the big Little Boots comeback
you all the odd person has been waiting for.
