Broods Remix Charli XCX’s “Break The Rules”

A downbeat remix that doesn’t sacrifice the sugar.

October 29, 2014

New Zealand sibling duo Broods have shared a remix of Charli XCX's monster hit "Break the Rules" that amplifies the gnarlier corners of the original tune while keeping its saccharine skeleton intact. Charli appreciated the group's light touch, praising Broods for putting her song in a "dark world." "Listening to this remix makes me feel like I'm in a video game," she writes in an email. "It's intense and I like that." Caleb Nott of Broods was equally excited: "I've always been a fan of the strong vocals of Charlie and her overall attitude and presence. With the remix I wanted to bring out that attitude," he said. Take a listen to the track below, then revisit our Broods GEN F profile from last month.
