    Boom Clap by Charli XCX


    If you haven’t heard of this girl yet, you will soon. Only 21, her catchy feel-good anthem Boom Clap was featured in this summer’s tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars. Fresh from her collaboration with Iggy Azalea on Fancy, this weekend she’s set to storm the charts with her first Top 10 single as a solo artist.

    Norwegian duo Nico Sereba and Vincent Dery came on our radar last summer with their smash hit Am I Wrong. Nico and Vinz met back in 2009, both working as sub-teachers they started making music together. ‘We had dreams of touching people all over the world,’ Vincent said to Rolling Stone this month. With Am I Wrong selling over a million copies in the US and a forthcoming LP, they’ve definitely achieved that goal.
