There’s a lot of buzz of late surrounding British singer/songwriter Charlotte Aitchison, known more familiar as Charli XCX.
The 21-year-old’s quixotic synth-pop debut, True Romance (released back in April on Atlantic Records), has spawned such hit singles as “So Far Away” and “You’re the One” while the Icona Pop smash, “I Love It,” has further illustrated her talent as a composer.
Already a seasoned performer on the live stage, she’s opened for the likes of Coldplay and Ellie Goulding, and she’s currently supporting Paramour on a string of UK arena dates. Her first headlining tour begins next month in North America—tickets for a previously scheduled N. American itinerary will be honored, where applicable—which will also feature such acts as Kitten and TWIN iDol, the latter with whom she’s collaborated on a new remix of “Wave,” a track by UK band Crystal Fighters.
Check out “Wave,” due September 23 at Beatport and October 8 on all other digital music services.
