Artist of my Summer: Charli XCX
After a rather explosive and prolific 2012, Charlotte Aitchison, better known as Charli XCX is finally dropping a proper LP this spring. True Romance will feature four of her best known hits, “You’re The One,” “Nuclear Seasons,” “You (Ha Ha Ha),” and “So Far Away” along with eight new tracks.
Here’s why you should be paying attention:
- Her catchy, massive goth-pop tunes have been named some of the best tracks of 2012 amongst music critics.
- You know that Icona Pop anthem, “I Love It” that you’ve been blaring in your car without a care in the world? Yep, she was a featured artist.
- Because “You’re The One” redefines what pop music can do in this internet-obessed, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it culture.
- Listen to Nuclear Seasons just once and you’ll understand. Seriously.
Watch out for Charli XCX this summer because her trajectory is only going higher.
