If you know where to look, there’s a whole treasure trove of Charli XCX ‘unreleased material’ knocking round the edges of internet. Of all of those demos and rarities, there’s one that’s felt like it might be a potential mega banger above any other - and it’s finally here.
‘Girls Night Out’ arrives almost exactly a year after the video to 2017’s standout ‘Boys’. If that’s a deliberate move, it works to perfection. With a refrain of ‘no boys, no boys’, it’s a track that’s euphoric in its embrace of sisterhood. On the town for a good time, it’s uncomplicated by anything other than maximum fun.
Switching from PC Music heavy futuresounds to classic late 80s Kylie, ‘Girls Night Out’ is a track well versed in its pop history, but certainly never looking backwards. All lipgloss and platforms, it’s proof that Charli XCX moves to her own nuclear powered beat.
