We wrote about the release of the first single from British alt-pop starlet Charli XCX's forthcoming second LP, Sucker last week, and less than a week later, Charli has dropped the official video for "Break the Rules," an easy contender for one of my top singles of the year to date. I've been playing this song more or less non-stop since it dropped last week, and the decidedly 90s high school movie vibe in the video fits the track perfectly. If this isn't the year that Charli doesn't become a massive pop star here in the states, then maybe we don't deserve her.
And for any Charli fans reading this post, we've got some superb footage of Charli XCX bringing down the house at the Hype Hotel from the 2013 SXSW in Austin, TX. Enjoy.
