The dance floor-ready track glistens with nostalgic playfulness as Little Boots continues to shine a light on her true DIY disco-pop artistry.

Luminous vocals shimmer over slinky digital grooves and a pulsing bassline as the track bounces forward with shiny optimism.

“Landline is a nostalgic song about being a teenager in the ’90s when you would spend hours clogging up the family phone line to talk to your school boyfriend or girlfriends. I got thinking about this in lockdown as music was still something that helped me feel close to friends even if we physically couldn’t be together, emotionally you can still feel connected through a shared playlist or remembering an old track. That’s one of the music’s superpowers and it remains true throughout my life, whether it’s pressing play on a tape machine down the phone years ago or dancing with my friends on zoom through the pandemic to a favourite anthem. Sonically the track has a sunny disco feel, I wanted to channel classic Chic via DJ Koze, but through my own DIY sound, putting the piano and big vocal stacks at the centre then weaving strings and synth parts throughout.”

Victoria said about the single

Little Boots fourth studio album is the first to be solely written and produced by the artist herself. The making of the record was powered entirely by the support of fans on the membership platform Patreon. The previous release ‘Silver Balloons’ was praised by leading online music press including BBC Ents, NME and Clash and was playlisted by both Apple Music and Spotify UK. Victoria also recently announced her part in the highly anticipated ABBA ‘Voyage’ concert, where she will be singing backing vocals, playing live keyboards and synthesisers.
In October 2021, Little Boots showcased the music from her new album alongside old favourites at a series of sold-out intimate shows across London and Manchester.
