Considering the current popularity of dance-pop artists like Robyn, Rihanna and Gaga, it’s somewhat surprising more folks haven’t heard of 19-year-old Londoner Charli XCX. We can’t get enough of her ’80s-tinged singles "Nuclear Seasons" and "Stay Away," both of which combine heavy synth and Charli’s quasi-Goth sound to awesome effect.
The UK singer launched her career playing at warehouse raves, which perhaps explains her cool club-kid style sense. Charli lives in patterned tights, sequined dresses and chunky statement gems—further dramatized, of course, with her signature super-voluminous ‘do.
Check out Charli XCX’s video for "Nuclear Seasons" below—there are wolves (huskies?) involved!—and check out some looks she’d love in the slideshow.
