CHARLI XCX FEATURED AS ROCK AND POP PICK IN LONDON SUNDAY TIMES

4/16/2013

"The Hertfordshire singer Charlotte Aitchison, first written about in 2008, when she was still at school doing her GCSEs, finally delivers her debut album — and it’s a belter. In these days of gnatlike attention spans, taking your time can backfire (just look at Azealia Banks), yet True Romance avoids that fate; thanks in part to her involvement in last year’s Icona Pop hit, I Love It, Aitchison has maintained a high profile. There are countless artists who would kill for electro-pop songs as strong as the ones here. With Siouxsie Sioux, Madonna, TLC and Robyn as her touchstones, Aitchison lays bare her romantic trials and tribulations, her alternately stroppy and candy-sweet singing and rapping dominating standouts such as Stay Away, Black Roses, Grins and What I Like. Many of the tracks have appeared before in various formats, which could have made the album a disjointed and even overfamiliar affair, but Aitchison is too powerful a force for True Romance to flag or dip. The sense that she is a loose cannon, only just containable within the rules of pop structures, makes for a thrilling ride. If Aitchison is something of a veteran at 20, on this evidence, her time has come. DC"
