Charlie XCX Teams with SOPHIE for Vroom Vroom EP, Announces Label and Shares New Single “Trophy”
Posted by Jackson 7 months ago in Music
Charlie XCX premiered a brand new single on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show today entitled, “Trophy,” following a Soundcloud drop of the title track “Vroom Vroom” from her new EP, due out March 25th. These zany bass-blowers are arguably her most experimental work to date, which is undoubtedly a result of working with the prolific PC Music MVP, Sophie.
“Trophy” bounces to a tribal-like cadence of booming bass and shrieking synths that rumble below a devilishly sweet layer of bubblegum pop, courtesy of XCX. The clash of these two EDM titans is unmistakably apparent as each member tosses their own signature flavors into the mixing pot to create something truly unique for the both of them.
The K-Pop infused future sounds of Sophie are blatantly present in “Vroom Vroom,” as confounding and strange as they are delightfully playful. The track moves in a schizophrenic manner, steering in and out of different emotional territories. At times you feel like giggling at the childlike nature of it all, while contrasting sections make you want to hold your heart and belt along.
The new EP is to be released on Charlie’s brand new label, Vroom Vroom Recordings, which she describes as an outlet for mysterious and dark experimental pop. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, I think it’s safe to say missionary is your go-to sex position. She will also be hosting her very own Beat 1 Radio show starting this Friday dubbed “The Candy Shop.”
