The British singer Charli XCX is making some of the most flat-out likable dance-pop of anyone working right now, and her late-2013 single “SuperLove” promised great things from her in 2014. It did not, however, promise this. Charli has just shared a minute-long cover of “Allergic To Love,” a song by the kinda-obscure Swedish punk band Snuffed By The Yakuza, and it’s a pretty fascinating example of what heavily-processed electro-hardcore might sound like if Atari Teenage Riot hadn’t come along and fucked up that concept for everyone. Listen below.
We’re expecting a new album from Charli this year, and it can’t come soon enough.
