Young British artist Charli XCX likes to call her cinematic pop sound “goth-pop”, and earlier songs such as the brilliant “Nuclear Seasons” certainly had tinges of darkness, but newly released “I’ll Never Know” is a tropical jam with a summery vibe. The track, which you can download below, is the fruit of three days spent at the Red Bull Studios in London with designer Fred Butler, and was performed live for the first time today as part of London Fashion Week. Grab a slice of sun-dappled pop below and cast your eyes on down if you fancy catching Charli supporting Sleigh Bells in Europe, or playing with Niki & The Dove in NY.
