While we anxiously await the much anticipated John Green book-turned-movie The Fault In Our Stars to hit the bigscreen this summer, we can start psyching ourselves up with its music. Charli XCX has released the first song from the film’s soundtrack, a bubbly pop hit titled “Boom Clap”. While the track is more toned down than her recent single “Superlove”, it still has me wanting to get up and dance. Driven by an old school 80’s beat but with a larger than life chorus, dance-pop’s breakout darling delivers an anthem big enough for the Hollywood screen. “Boom Clap” is infectious and cosmic, much like the singer herself, and I can’t stop listening to it.
