Listening Post: Charli XCX

British electro-dance queen Charlotte Emma Aitchison is better known by her stage name, Charli XCX. She was the featured vocal on an Alex Metric track a couple of years back and wrote a hit song for Icona Pop and now her debut album, True Romance, is finally available worldwide.

It’s not so much that she’s doing anything particularly new, but what she does within her genre she does very well. Her stuff is catchy, danceable, and undeniably 80s-inspired.

Here’s Nuclear Seasons.

Chez Pazienza was the beating heart of The Daily Banter, sadly passing away on February 25, 2017. His voice remains ever present at the Banter, and his influence as powerful as ever.
