Charli Xcx finally releases No Angel. In 2017, the singer released her ‘Pop 2’ mixtape. It was a brilliant, breathless 40 minutes of experimental pop music, full of bold collaborations with big name stars (Carly Rae Jepsen, Alma, MØ) and rising stars (Kim Petras and Tommy Cash, to name but two), and it was a total triumph.
Since its release last year, XCX has played a series of Pop 2 shows, each receiving glowing reviews and boasting guest appearances from the stars of ‘Pop 2’.
Village Underground is a small and intimate venue; but it was jam-packed full of diehard fans who were lucky enough to get their mitts on tickets (the London show sold out within minutes). And as soon as XCX bounded on stage, she totally commanded the audience. From the opening electronic whirs of ‘Unlock It’, the army of XCX stans reached frenzy point: every single lyric was screamed back, shirts were whipped off.
