Charlie XCX, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Arcade Fire

by | 31 Jul, 2017 | Magazine, Music

Good Monday! This week’s music selection features the return of our old favourites. We’ve got a sexy new video by Charlie XCX, a new chipper video to perk up your week by The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, and Arcade Fire’s new album Everything Now.


1. Charlie XCX – Boys
Ladies, please control your drool for this one. Charlie XCX’s latest video is a tasty platter that features some of her friends of the male variety (60 to be exact), and includes a sexy slew of celebrities like Kaytranada, Ezra Koenig, Stormzy, Riz Ahmed, Joe Jonas, Chromeo, Diplo, Carl Barat, Brendon Urie, Mark Ronson, two cats and a puppy, and 50 more boys!


2. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – When I Dance With You
The Echo of Pleasure, the forth studio album by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart will be out in September. The band recently released the video for the new single ‘When I Dance With You’, which is a gleeful 80s throwback tune with a mix of animated and live-action sequences. A little homage to like A-ha’s ‘Take on Me‘ perhaps?


3. Arcade Fire – Everything Now
We’ve been looking forward to Arcade Fire’s follow up to 2013’s Reflektor, and after the first listen, we’re convinced that Everything Now is a pretty good album. Although it’s not their best, it is something leans towards the electronic zone and definitely something for the dancefloors- which we have no complaints about!


Small Talk: Sobs

It was as if they appeared out of thin air. Earlier this year, Sobs released their debut EP ‘Catflap’, a collection of six tracks filled with that all indie pop wonder we desired.
