Charli XCX

After scoring a massive electronic-pop crossover hit in "I Love It" with Icona Pop, British-born Charli XCX has ridden a rising tide of indie buzz straight to the top of the pop charts, both as a solo artist and with acts like Iggy Azalea. The lead single from Charli XCX's major label debut First Romance, "Boom Clap," went to the top of the Billboard Top 100, cementing her status as the latest in a parade of electronic artists to fully cross over into the mainstream. Now, Charli XCX is poised to become one of the most successful of those crossover artists: In August, she announced the forthcoming release of her second major-label album, and the Dallas stop on her tour may be one of your last chances to see this artist-on-the rise in a small venue like Trees. Just five stops later, Charli XCX will join Katy Perry for the European leg of her world tour. Look out, world.
