Charli XCX Premieres Kaleidoscopic Video for “Nuclear Seasons”
Oh, Charli XCX!
After premiering the staggeringly amazing “Stay Away” (expect that one to rank high on my year-end “Best of 2011” list), the young UK goth-pop princess (who I “Introduuced” not too long ago) has just delivered the video treatment for her bouncing, brooding new ’80’s-encrusted tune: “Nuclear Seasons.”
Complete with some dizzying video effects and nostalgia-ridden technicolor and static, Mizz Charli dazzles and dances her way through the VHS-friendly fantasy, directed by Ryan Andrews.
I can see lil’ bits of Little Boots, Lykke Li and Marina & The Diamonds scattered within this clip, but mostly (and most importantly), I see a whole lot of potential lurking just ’round the corner.
Charli XCX, everyone: Easily one of my most anticipated debuts of 2012. Bring it on, madame!
