Charli seems to have found the jackpot lane lately, singing or guesting on songs aimed straight for high-school-aged (American?) girls. That vibe still is in effect on this one, an ode to Jawbreaker complete with a Rose McGowan cameo.
The movie clip job is one of those music video tropes that I thought would never survive the Internet age — especially since the unbundled album has made the compilation soundtrack somewhat irrelevant. Yet, here it is.
So, while there's a whole lotta The Fault In Our Stars footage scattered throughout "Boom Clap," at least the Charli XCX footage was shot in a location (Amsterdam) related to the movie footage, and it has CXCX, who rode shotgun on the supernovas "Fancy" and "I Love It" and is now more than ready for a hit in her own name.
