English pop-singer Charli XCX returned earlier this year with a new mixtape entitled Number 1 Angel, which was released on March 10 via Asylum Records. This came ahead of the eventual release of her third album, which is still reported to be released sometime this year.

This Wednesday she brought her big-time live show to Le Poisson Rouge, for a very sold out intimate experience with her fans. The show featured support from Cupcakke and Brooke Candy.

Charli XCX at Governors Ball 2015

By Will Oliver, July 30th 2015

The sun came out and pushed the cloudy skies away just in time for the set of English pop star Charli XCX, who used the sunshine to her advantage in a devastatingly fun set that got the midday crowd into party mode.

She ran through tracks off last year’s Sucker (out via Atlantic Records), such as the all too familiar “Boom Clap,” and “Famous.” Charli also integrated “I Love It,” her massive collaboration with Icona Pop that took over the radio in 2013.

Her set was a constant ball of energy, delivering a colorful performance brought to life vividly with props such as a giant inflatable guitar. Even though pop music isn’t traditionally my thing, her set was infectious and hard not to enjoy. I only was able to catch the first half, but it was a lot of fun.

Find more photos from her set posted below.

Charli XCX – SuperLove

Charli XCX

It’s nearly impossible to deny the catchiness that Charli XCX achieves in “SuperLove”, her brand new single. Just what a pop song really should be all about. I can dig this.

It’s from her new album, which will come out some time next year (she already release one this year). The single comes out on December 1. Catch the video below.

Charli XCX – You’re The One

By Will Oliver, June 15th 2012

“You’re The One” is a track from Charli XCX’s debut EP of the same name. It just came out via IAMSOUND. It aims big in terms of scope, grabbing the starlight in terms of pop aesthetics. It’s a smartly written tune that won’t leave your head anytime soon.

Coldplay brought her out on tour with them, so it’s safe to assume she really is going places.

Below you can watch a great acoustic performance of the song that she did for Invisible Children:

There was certainly something for everyone.

Gov Ball

Today, Governors Ball returns to New York City to take over Randall’s Island Park for another edition of the annual festival. It’s hard to believe that it’s June, let alone time for another edition of NYC’s beloved festival.

By now, you should (probably) have a good idea of who you’ll be seeing tomorrow, as well as the rest of the weekend. But if not, I’ve compiled a list of artists who I plan to catch throughout the weekend, if that will help sway your decision.
