Charli XCX - "Boom Clap (ASTR Remix)" (audio)

9 July 2014

In addition to a new remix of her tune "Boom Clap", Charli XCX has just announced a headlining tour in the US, beginning in late September.
2014 has already shaped up to be a busy year for the London musician Charli XCX, with her own “Boom Clap” as well as her co-write on Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” taking national airwaves by storm. The former tune has an excellent new remix by the New York-based duo ASTR, which reimagines it as a minimalist, icy club bumper.

In tandem with the announcement of the remix, Charli XCX has also released the dates for her upcoming US headlining tour.

"There’s a preciousness to McCarter and the rest of the mostly young band. You want to freeze the moment, to make sure they are taking it all in too. Because it’s going to change.
