David Titlow shoots Charli XCX for Aritzia

 The British nu-rave upstart Charli XCX is mere months away from releasing her debut album, a still-untitled disc that she estimates took six years to write and record, and she is clearly raring to go. “It’s pop music on my terms,” the 20-year-old from Hertfordshire, England, says excitedly about the dark synth and gothic soundscapes that anchor the record. She’s already on a roll stateside with the release of the first single “You (Ha Ha Ha),” an eccentric electropop kiss-off with a curiously warped tempo (much more Lykke Li than Lady Gaga), plus her recent mixtape Super Ultra and her guest vocals on the ubiquitous Icona Pop club hit “I Love It” (which she wrote). She dialed in to Aritzia from across the pond to give us an update on the album, divulge the science of sampling, and geek out on the Spice Girls.
