Charli XCX & Brooke Candy – Cloud Aura (Dir. Ryan Andrews)
I just wanted to put the spot light on Charli XCX this morning because she represents to me very the line between personal underground music and industry product. When you start to listen to artist writing or producing music the movement of decades is not always as clear as some would like you to believe. Different influences leading to different worlds when mixed together. Charli XCX to me sounds middle 80’s, beginning of 2000 and 2012 in the same time. Experimental pop I would say, with a strong english accent which is not surprising since Charlott Aitchison akk Charli XCX is actually english. So here is Cloud Aura, directed by Ryan Andrews and featuring Brooke Candy, a music video part of Super Ultra, Charli CXC latest mixtape. This vice oriented video suburban night street culture might be perfect soundtrack to your gifted junky girlfriend and is to me the most convincing track of the mixtape, but it’s only me.
