Here’s a big surprise for the start of the week. It still feels like not so long ago that ElectroPop rabble-rouser Charli XCX released her début (or second, depending on your point-of-view) album True Romance. Now she;s just announced the impending release of her sophomore (or third, depending on your point-of-view) full length record. Out in October the new one is called Sucker, and thankfully sees her applying her recent flirtation with Punk to a bucket load of synths. Here’s the first taste of what’s to come, Break The Rules.
Break The Rules is a massive tune. Unashamedly Electro-Rock, with a rumbling bassline and pounding beat reminiscent of some of the big stadium tunes of the early 2000’s, but with added euphoric synth rises. You can definitely tell Charli has been getting her Punk on as she belts out her not-giving-a-shit anthem. This one could easily be the subject of some killer reMixes too. Colour us intrigued for the new album.
