London avant-garde ElectroPop chick Charli XCX drops der début US EP this week which sees her recent successful single ‘Nuclear Seasons’ with a new track ‘You’re The One’ and a couple of reMixes. It’s bee quite a journey for Charli these past few years, from her bubblegum beginning to to her more mature, intricately crafted sound she displays today (which I refuse to call GothPop *shakes head*).
‘You’re The One’ is absolutely beautiful. Aggressive Industrial rhythms and growling bass juxtapose with lush Vangelis-esque futuristic soundscape synths and, more than any of her tracks to date, ‘You’re The One’ shows of Charli’s voice to be a million times more versatile, and at times so much more warm and passionate, that I had previously thought. This is proper melancholic Pop, the kind rarely found outside of the ‘80’s, melancholic shot through this a streak of optimism, and we’re a bit hooked.
