Charli XCX Super Ultra Mixtape

Yup, one of my personal favorite UK “Disney grunge” goth pop artists released a promised new mixtape today titled Super Ultra. It’s a dark, syrupy, wicked listen and it’s free for all to download. A couple of the songs were previewed previously, and other ones sample some goodies and other awesome artists. Nommy nommy. Here’s her official announcement of the 8 track treat and where to download:

Hey everyone,

It’s here, the new mixtape SUPER ULTRA. DOWNLOAD IT FROM HERE ! ! !

Making it was an intense experience for me coz I basically wrote the whole thing whilst I was driving around in a car in Poland. I was only there for two days so everything is totally raw. All the songs are about love. Sometimes it’s stupid love and sometimes it’s heartbreaking love. It’s about being confused. In particular, GLOW is a really emotional song for me. I think I had my first proper breakdown when I wrote that song. I cried a lot.

I cried a lot whilst making this mixtape, which is funny because some of the songs seem quite light-hearted and a bit… I dunno… Gangster. To me they’re all sad songs in some way though. Some songs were inspired by moments in movies – like DANCE 4 U was inspired by the opening scene of Planet Terror, where Rose McGowan does the pole dance. I think that’s a really sad and desperate scene. It makes me cry when I watch it.

I guess that’s all just personal shit though. I don’t want people to be sad when they listen to SUPER ULTA… I want them to be happy, and I want them to dance. No one dances in this town anymore.

You can download the full SUPER ULTRA mixtape HERE. Just click it. The full track listing is:

CLOUD AURA FEAT. BROOKE CANDY //J£ZUS MILLION MOMENTS IN LOVE //ART OF NOISE VELVET DREAMING (LUV) //GIRAFFAGE DANCE 4 U //SINJIN HAWKE GLOW //BATHS HEATWAVE //JACKSON COLD NITES REMIX //HOW TO DRESS WELL FORGIVENESS //JAKWOB

In other news, I’m playing a DJ set at The Garage on 21st November. Tom Vek, Brenton and Coves are all playing live, it’s gonna be a wicked night. Tickets are HERE and are only a fiver.

I’m in the process of finishing up my record. It’s going to be incredible – I’m so proud of it. Thanks for being so patient with me. When it drops you’ll be the first to know.

I can’t wait for her debut album. I really can’t.

EDIT: After listening through the whole dang thing, I’m loving it! Seriously! And I REALLY love the last track, the stand out Forgiveness. Dramatic, emotional, strong vocals, sexy, wonderful.
