Charli XCX - http://www.myspace.com/charlixcx
Charli first started performing aged 4 when she won a cruise ship talent contest performing Aqua’s ‘Barbie Girl’. 14 years on she’s been described by The Guardian as “a pubescent MIA, the computer-pop Kate Nash, Lily Allen lost in space, the female Frankmusik, the Fisher Price Fischerspooner, Lykke Li's grimy young British cousin”. Full of E numbers and armed with an amazing range of self written and performed songs Charli is not to be missed! First single ‘¡Franchesckaar!’ was the pop rave kids sound of the summer!
