We’re hearing about her everywhere. She collaborated with Icona Pop on “I Love It” (which we became obsessed with after seeing it featured on that episode of Girls…you know the one we mean…). She has opened for Coldplay. She’s just finished up a handful of shows at South by Southwest, and now she’s gearing up for her tours with Ellie Goulding and Marina & the Diamonds.
Charli is a badass. I think that’s pretty apparent. And she’s absolutely a true pop artist – but not a manufactured, formulaic clone popster like the ones dominating the radio (too many names…I cannot pick). I got to see her twice at South by Southwest this year, and I can’t emphasize this enough- she’s the real deal.
So, in honor of my newfound Charli-love, I scored an interview with her so we could talk about her name, our mutual obsession with Girls, her collaboration with Icona Pop and her tour plans!
Enjoy, and then be sure to snag her upcoming album, True Romance (coming in April) and catch her on her upcoming tour!

Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
