On December 1st, UK electropop artist Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, will return with her new EP, Business Pleasure. The four-track collection follows the 2013 full-length Nocturnes and was produced by Com Truise, Simian Mobile Disco’s Jaw Shaw, and Chris Carmouche (Outkast, Janelle Monáe, Major Lazer).
In a statement, Little Boots noted how the EP comes during a particularly “liberating” phase in her life. “For the first time I’m in a place where I’m truly in control of my career both creatively and logistically, which is incredibly liberating and exciting,” she said. “I wrote a piece for The Times last year about my experiences of pop-life and then setting up my own label, and the response was overwhelming. It’s such an inspiring time for empowered young women.”
Our first sampling of Business Pleasure comes courtesy of “Taste It”, a delectable and hypnotic number that sees Little Boots trading in the glitzy disco flavor of Nocturnes for more simmering tribal rhythms. Listen in below.
