I’m always overjoyed when Charli XCX releases new music, and I never know quite what to expect, having followed her career since her early electropop days. New song Boys is a sugary bop, and it comes with music video filled with endless celebrity and musician cameos. From Chromeo to Charlie Puth, Flume to G Eazy, Mac DeMarco to Brendan Urie, Kaytranada to Portugal. the Man, this one has them all. It’s loads of fun just to try and pick out everyone while bopping your head to the infectious pop song. Charli XCX directed the video herself, too. Boys is a fizzy light treat compared to the British artist’s prior release, her punchy mixtape Number 1 Angel. Grab the single, here.

In less than five days, Childhood will be releasing their highly anticipated sophomore album Universal High via Marathon Artists. In anticipation of the event, the Nottingham quartet has unleashed a fittingly lo-fi music video for its latest single, Cameo, in which we follow an enigmatic degenerate figure through a meandering urban expedition, as captured by director Katia Ganfield. We’re no strangers to how intoxicating Childhood can be with their gauzy pop, which in this case emanates a dreamy languorous drizzle of psychedelic soul. But Cameo also builds in energy towards spacey spiraling apexes. We groove along, relishing the blissful ride. You can pre-order new album Universal High before it arrives on Friday, here.
