Five months following the Moroder-esque/house hybrid single “Shake,” Little Boots follows up with “Every Night I Say a Prayer,” a chilly and hypnotic track that keeps running with the soulful club sounds reminiscent of Snap! and Ce Ce Pennington in early 90’s house.
This is a fruitful collaboration with Andy Butler of Hercules & Love Affair, at first lulling you in with Little Boots’ chilly synth. But the pair are not straddling Hands territory anymore. “Every Night I Say a Prayer” is a tasty throwback, right down to the circular hooks and the energetic, looping piano that kicks in right around the minute and a half mark. From the sum of the parts thus far, Little Boots appears to be gearing up for a sparkling and loving appreciation of early 90’s ambiance, not soaked in so much nostalgia that the productions are indicipherable from the sounds that influence her.
