Charli XCX – “Gold Coins”

Charli XCX’s sophomore album Sucker finally looks like it’s about to hit stores next month. It remains to be seen whether it’ll achieve its goal, completing the process of moving Charli from internet-pop sensation to actual pop sensation. After “Boom Clap” popped off, she’s shared early singles “Break The Rules” and “London Queen,” neither of which was especially great. But “Gold Coins,” the latest track she’s shared, is exactly the sort of thing she should be doing. It’s a big, brash, crunchy, confident new-wave number. Charli wrote it with Robyn/Icona Pop collaborator Patrik Berger, and it bangs like prime Sky Ferreira. Listen below.

Sucker is out 12/16 on Asylum/Atlantic/Neon Gold. “Gold Coins” is on iTunes now.
