“Silver Balloons” is the return-track from Little Boots AKA Victoria Hesketh. The song was written and produced by Little Boots, her first time behind the boards. Victoria recently announced her part in the Abba ‘Voyage’ concert, where she will be singing backing vocals, playing live keyboards and synthesisers.

Of the track Victoria says, “Silver Balloons is in many ways a metaphor for all the cancelled plans and parties of lockdown, all of the disappointments as one by one we watched many of our hopes and desires burst like shiny balloons at the end of the night. All we have left is each other; coming together and holding tight to hope is the way we have all seemed to get through the last couple of years. Sonically, I was listening to a lot of classic 70s songwriters during the making of this record while really putting the piano at the centre of everything, so you can hear echoes of Elton John, Carole King, The Bee Gees, even Wings. The piano and vocals in this track also really remind me of one of my all-time favourites Saint Etienne. I’m also especially proud of 100% writing and producing this record myself, and it being totally powered by my fans via their support on Patreon.”

In October 2021, Little Boots will also showcase the music from her new album alongside old favourites at a series of intimate shows across London and Manchester, further club nights are set to be announced under the Little Boots moniker before the year closes out.
