Nina Corcoran Best of 2014

Nina Corcoran’s ‘Best of 2014’ in Music

If there’s anything to be certain of when it comes to music, it’s that you can’t control when it strikes you. In a year filled with violence, racism, disease, and political stumblings, our brains were in overdrive trying to do the right thing. For most, music serves as an escape. It articulates emotions and brings […]

REVIEW: Charli XCX – ‘SUCKER’

Artist: Charli XCX Album: SUCKER Genre: Pop Label: Asylum Records In the lead-up to SUCKER, I posited a comparison between Charli XCX’s current career arc and early 2000’s Avril Lavigne. Something about the former’s progression from what would now be considered Lorde-esque alt-pop to pop punk reminded me of a better version of Lavigne’s grunge-aping early work turning into […]

As part of Kia’s In-Ride Sessions, the two have swapped out each other’s songs and gave us their personal […]

Charli XCX Releases Video For “Breaking Up”

Singing sensation Charli XCX made her way into the hearts of many after her feature on Iggy Azalea‘s smash hit “Fancy” earlier this year. Since that time, Charli has seen a good deal of success with the singles she’s released from her upcoming breakout album Sucker. Now on the album’s third single, she’s premiering the […]

Charli XCX Releases Yet Another Punchy Single With “Breaking Up”

It’s almost criminal that Charli XCX‘s sophomore album, Sucker, is dropping in December (for now). Old Charli made sense in cooler months, slick and moody alt-pop that had unfortunate timing in coinciding with Lorde’s rise. This sophomore album has taken a hard left into sun-drenched pop of blissful youth, steering determinedly into the unexpected success of “Boom […]

Charli XCX Continues To Impress With “Gold Coins”

Charli XCX has become the latest promising young artist to have the release of their debut album fumbled by a major label with no idea how to promote talent that falls outside the realm of whatever is popular at radio today. Her sophomore album, Sucker, was scheduled to arrive months ago, but at this point […]

Listen to Charli XCX’s New Song “London Queen”

If British singer, songwriter, and all around badass Charli XCX moving her new album’s release date back to December 16 has you down (or even later for you UK folks), fear no more. The highly-anticipated sophomore album, Sucker, now has a new single for fans to play on repeat until the holidays: “London Queen.” The single […]

Charli XCX Pushes Back ‘Sucker,’ Shares New Album Art

Following a steady slew of good news from Charli XCX, we have a bit of a downer: the release of her sophomore album Sucker has been pushed back from October 21 to December 16 in the US. The album won’t see light in Europe until next year, with January 26 set for the UK/Europe drop date. The […]

Dreams Do Come True – Sky Ferreira And Charli XCX Wrote A Song Together

It’s a great time for pop music, and two young purveyors of the fine art who’ve finally found some good fortune are uniting to create more. Sky Ferreira, after several delays and disputes with the record label, finally released her fantastic debut album Night Time, My Time last year. Charli XCX faced a similar road, finally seeing her debut album True […]

Watch Charli XCX Hijack a School Bus In “Break The Rules” Video

Back before “Fancy” and The Fault In Our Stars and millions of YouTube views, Charli XCX was ghostwriting for singers and working on her own set of pop songs. Fastforward to 2014, and she’s putting out a new album called Sucker (out October 21), and singing a little off-key on the radio to “Boom Clap.” This year has seen her […]

Charli XCX Wants To “Break The Rules” And Put Out This New Album, ‘Sucker’

Many ages ago, in a time before “Boom Clap” and “Fancy” appeared against the radio horizon, Charli XCX released a candystriped single called “Superlove.” It was, presumably, a precursor to a second album. News of that second album was a long time coming, though. We got a few cool covers, and then, well, Iggy and The Fault […]
