“It’s quite simple,” says 19-year-old shooting star Charli XCX. “We need to reboot British girl power, but this time with edge!” A bold claim, but if there’s anyone whose fingers are best placed to hit CTRL-ALT-DEL on pop, it’s Charli. Believe all you read about breaths of fresh air and you’d half expect a force ten gale to be blowing through the music industry but here, we have the real deal: a singer songwriter liberated from the acoustic guitar fixation that preoccupies so many; a teenage popstar with a good head on her shoulders and a sharp mind in her head.Amazing style, presence, confidence and above all else talent from one so young.
I dunno if we need to reboot British girl power, they seem to be doing very nicely, but by all I have heard Charli XCX could most certainly be in the forefront real soon.
Check her out, you will be impressed.

Stay Away Here is a video I filmed with the Blind Club at Dalston Heights at the end of last year. Along with 'Nuclear Seasons' this was one of my indie singles from last year, released through the amazing label This Is Music. It has been such a pleasure working with them throughout 2011. To everyone who has supported these two songs, thank you so much! It means so much to me that people have taken notice of these tracks - they are really important to me and definitely symbolise the beginning of Charli XCX. Now it's 2012, potentially the end of the world, so I can't wait to bring you something even bigger and better. And I can't wait to hear what you guys think of all the new stuff to come. Loads of love and massive thanks to everyone involved with Stay Away and Nuclear Seasons. Enjoy these videos and post your comments. Xxx Charli XCX
