Though the music of Little Boots easily sits alongside the likes of Kylie Minogue and Katy Perry, her '80s jams are also delivered both a bit more earnestly and with a bit more complexity. In other words, she's the dancefloor version of the girl-next-door, hashing out her heartbreaks and obsessions within a gem-like framework of shiny synths, her glittering soprano and plenty of edgy beats. Her initial single, "Stuck on Repeat," was a collaboration with Joe Goddard of Hot Chip, and like any good bubblegum it’s still sticking five years later.
