New Standard: Listen to Charli XCX riff with guitars on the chilled-out ‘Gold Coins’


There’s been a nice long build-up to Charli XCX’s upcoming sophomore record Sucker, which finally drops December 16 here in the States. First we got our “Boom Clap” on throughout the summer, then we soundtracked fall with “London Queen” and “Break The Rules.”

Now along comes another tasty pop nugget from Sucker, the guitar-riffy “Gold Coins,” which Charli wrote with Icona Pop and Robyn collaborator Patrik Berger.

It may not have the same arena-rock ambitions of her previous work, but it’s a fine chilled-out album track that sounds like a nice addition to your cherished cassette mixtape back in high school. And it’s further solidifying Sucker as some sort of modern-day Greatest Hits record, arriving just in time for the holidaze.


As we await the inevitable release of “Famous,” the real mega hit on Sucker, take a knee and check out “Gold Coins” below…
