"Vroom Vroom" - Charli XCX is back and better than ever
Today Charlotte Aitchison - aka Charli XCX - is back with her new EP ‘Vroom Vroom’, and she is poised to conquer the pop-scene once more - this time not just with her music, but also with her newest business venture. Since her second studio album ‘Sucker’ (2014), 23 year old Charli has managed to top the charts as a songwriter with Selena Gomez’s ‘Same Old Love’ , create a documentary on sexism in the music-business, write songs alongside Iggy Azalea and Icona Pop AND establish her own label Vroom Vroom Recordings, under which her newest EP with be released.
Charli commented - "Vroom Vroom Recordings is my new, experimental pop label and it will combine my love for bubblegum pop with mystery and darkness. The artists coming up through it will be sharp, potent, deadly, and ultimately, will leave their mark on pop music. RIVRS and CuckooLander are two artists who have so much intelligence, pop sensibility and potential - they know what they want and both have great vision. That inspires me and it's why I want to work with them. I've always been fascinated by shy and introvert people - it's something that I am mostly not - and I feel both acts are in ways. It captivates me and sucks me in, and I think their music will do the same for others.
I've worked with SOPHIE on the new EP and what we create together speaks for itself. Sometimes we get aggressive, sometimes we get beautiful; he pushes me and I push him. I'm making beautiful party songs right now and this is just the start. The album goes to other places and I can't wait for people to hear it. I feel the most creative I have in a long time and I couldn't be more excited for the next chapter.”
The ‘Vroom Vroom’ EP is available today - Friday 26th February - and features 4 new tracks including sassy title-song ‘Vroom Vroom’ produced by SOPHIE and ‘Paradise’ featuring Hannah Diamond. Charli XCX will also host her own Beats 1 Radio Show tonight at 8pm UK time and has an upcoming DJ set at the Ace Hotel, London onFriday 11th March 2016 with her brand new signees RIVRS and CuckooLander
