BBC Sound of 2009: Little Boots

Fifteen of the best rising music stars have been announced as the longlist for the BBC's Sound of 2009.

Little Boots is the stage name of Victoria Hesketh, who left synth-rock girl group Dead Disco to pursue a solo pop path and has been guided by Hot Chip's Joe Goddard.

Like a British Kylie or a harder, shinier St Etienne, she plays catchy, credible futuristic pop. She was raised as an accomplished pianist but now prefers to play the tenorion, a flashing Japanese gadget, which has become her trademark instrument.
