Lit­tle Boots Taste It It’s not quite the up­beat elec­tronic disco of for­mer days, but we’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing where this dark di­rec­tion will take Lit­tle Boots. n Emmy The Great Swimming Pool Fea­tur­ing him-off-Wild-Beasts on BVs, this at­mo­spheric in­die love-in trem­bles with del­i­cacy. Frag­ile and verg­ing on hys­ter­i­cal melo­drama, but lovely all the same. n Sharks Wait If Icona Pop were S Club 7 – IMAG­INE! – then Sharks would be their S Club Ju­niors. It’s an even brat­tier ver­sion of their pound­ing Swedo-pop. n Tay­lor Swift Style Uni­ver­sally ac­knowl­edged as the best track on 1989, it bor­rows quite heav­ily from Katy Perry’s trick of wrap­ping Amer­i­can nostal­gia around a Robyn of­f­cut. n Nicki Mi­naj and Bey­oncé Feel­ing My­self Like the swept up scraps of other su­pe­rior songs, it sounds patchy and min­i­mal. The best bit is when one of them – pre­sum­ably a Nicki Mi­naj al­ter ego – says ‘carry on.’ n Gwen Ste­fani Spark The Fire Pick­ing up where Wind It Up left off, this is the real come­back sin­gle for Ste­fani, full of back-in-yer-face bravado and the kind of song that makes you want to desk dance. n Le Youth Real Adding to the Duke Du­mont school of 90s nostal­gia for to­day, the house pi­anos and spliced up diva vo­cal are to the let­ter. n Madonna ft Avicii Rebel Heart Daddy is­sues set to a disco beat, she’s back on the EDM band­wagon with a heav­ily scored string sec­tion pro­vid­ing the su­per­bra support. n
