Charli XCX – “Break The Rules” (Phantogram Remix)

Charli XCX’s killer sophomore album, Sucker, came out at the tail end of last year, but she still managed to dominate most of 2014 with a series of high-profile pop collaborations. When it came to her own material though, Charli leaned more punk than pop, as the tantrum-throwing “Break The Rules” illustrated so well. To push the track even further outside of the straight pop realm, Phantogram have remixed it, cutting out some of the bluster and giving it a synth dreaminess and EDM intensity that pushes the pouty-ness into full-blown defiance. Listen below.
