As you may be aware, Charli XCX is currently making her way around Australia as part of the Groovin’ The Moo festival dates as well as headlining a bunch of solo sideshows while she’s in town. What you might not be aware of though, is Charli performed a super intimate showcase for Spotify in their Sydney offices.
We sent our buddies The Interns along to snap a couple of pics for our Instagram which included them capturing the classic moment below of someone FaceTiming in a friend to the exclusive event -
Which is pretty damn awesome in itself BUT what’s even better is the fact that we managed to track down the BFFs thanks to some social media sleuthing and they were happy to provide us with their side of the story!
Selin aka #TheRealMVP - I was at the Spotify performance with my friend Lara, who won the competition and prior to the gig we had met Charli in the city and Charli must’ve remembered Lara and I because we all started laughing at each other. We started sending photos to Yuka and she asked where we were and Lara proposed the idea to call up Yuka and that’s what gave us the idea to call her up!
Yuka aka the lucky BFF - I’m currently living in Tokyo and I missed out on Charli in Japan and in Australia so my friend was kind enough to randomly surprise me with Charli performing at the Spotify performance with her song “Doing It” on FaceTime while I was on a very busy train during peak hour. The performance was amazing, her energy and vocals were incredible. I was so amazed and amused by the experience.
And THAT is what friends/iPhone Facetime technology is for!
In other Charli related news the bombshell teamed up with local crew Carmada to lend her vox to their tune On Fire as part of their Like a Version performance on triple j. You can check that out below and also well worth a look is the guys’ supremo cover of Major Lazer & DJ Snake’s chart topper Lean On.
