Mura Masa's new Charli XCX collaboration is the perfect, summery jam

Mura Masa's new Charli XCX collaboration is the perfect, summery jam

That last glimpse of Australian summer we're desperately needing.

In 2014, a young, British electronic producer under the alias of Mura Masa – real name Alex Crossan – uploaded a mixtape called Soundtrack To A Death online, with singles including the now well-recognized Lotus Eater kick-starting his career in the biggest of ways. In 2014, another British newcomer was making some serious waves too; Charli XCX, with her second, Boom Clap-featuring album Sucker. Fast forward three years later and both these Brits are two of our most discussed names, with Mura Masa solidifying his hype with a range of genre-crossing singles (including collaborations with A$AP Rocky and Shura) and Charli XCX, who has taken a turn into the experimental realm with the left-field Vroom Vroom EP right up to last week’s A.G. Cook-directed Number 1 Angel mixtape. Funnily enough today the two unite, with Mura Masa continuing the steady stream of singles from his forthcoming To Fall Out Of Love To debut with 1 Night, with Charli XCX jumping on board for vocal duties. Opening with a soft, clanging melody and Charli XCX’s accessible vocals, it doesn’t take long for 1 Night to transform into the glistening, sun-stroked single it truly is. Rolls of steel drums and a crisp, dancehall-esque percussion line unite in the song’s chorus, which when joined by Charli’s now-familiar, bubbly vocal touch, really starts to pick up and ingrain itself into your brain – in a good way. Listen to the track below, and stay tuned for more details on Mura Masa and Charli XCX’s respective albums, both due later in the year.
