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 a few short days, Swimming Tapes will be dropping their new EP, Souvenirs. Cameos is their latest preview of that treat, a warm draft of sunshine and summer nostalgia. The London based indie pop band soak us with bittersweet guitar pop reminiscent of Day Wave and DIIV but more soft and misty. A peppy beat and effulgent jangles makes this the perfect head bopping confection. I’m left yearning for blue skies and long lazy afternoons. Swimming Tapes EP, Souvenirs, will arrive on Friday, January 27th. You can purchase Cameos as a single from iTunes.
