Charli XCX Debuts New Song “Breaking Up” At SXSW: Watch

44ab54a261c2e22081da4547e5b6c4e3 Charli XCX Debuts New Song “Breaking Up” At SXSW: Watch

All signs indicate Charli XCX is making a concerted effort to trade in the bubbly, squiggly, Tumblr-wave sonics on which she has built her reputation in exchange for rock elements. Which really isn’t that surprising, because let’s be honest, Icona Pop‘s “I Love It” is really a punk song disguised as club pop. But even more overtly, she’s traveling with a guitar-bass-drums band, says her sophomore album is punk-influenced and released this thrashing little song.

And now, after revealing that she linked up with Weezer‘s Rivers Cuomo for her True Romance followup, Charli unveiled the strutting rocker “Breaking Up” at SXSW. It’s all peppy angst, with crunchy guitars and a yell-at-your-ex refrain of “Everything is wrong with you / So breaking up was easy to do,” all of which certainly seems to suggest it has Cuomo’s fingerprints on it.
