What’s big in our box // Charli XCX – You (Ha Ha Ha)

We never thought we’d see EMO electronic genius Gold Panda put out a pop song, but thanks to some nifty sampling by Brit singer/songwriter Charli XCX, he sorta has.

The Hertfordshire-born 20-year-old throws a cyber-goth rave in a gun factory in the video for her GP-sampling new single ‘You (Ha Ha Ha)’.

Charli said of the accompanying gun-toting vid (directed by Ryan Andrews):

We’d been watching a lot of grindhouse movies, mostly with strong female leads like The Pom Pom Girls and Coffy, and there seemed to be a bizarre cross over from that genre of cinema and today’s world of pop.

Shooting the video in a gun factory seemed like the perfect grindhouse setting for a kick ass, girl power story, with super pretty girls swapping the bullets for lipstick. Cute!

Essentially, it’s made us want to don galactic print Lycra leggings, a crucifix choker and a Global Hypercolour T-shirt and pop a cap in yo’ ass. Or suchlike.
