Charli XCX released an Amsterdam-centered music video for her synth-pop love song ‘Boom Clap’ off of the ‘Fault in Our Stars’ soundtrack.
The British singer has her hands full, between helping Iggy Azalea promote their radio hit ‘Fancy’ and preparing for her own sophomore album, due out later this year. Luckily for us, the 21-year-old found the time to record a music video for her mid-tempo track ‘Boom Clap.’
The video stays true to the young adult movie in which it features, using scenes from the film as well as setting the music video in Amsterdam, a major location for ‘Fault in Our Stars’ protagonists Hazel and Augustus. Charli XCX goes on her own Amsterdam exploration as she traipses around the canal-lined city, dancing along the streets while superimposed neon graphics dance around her.
The video is packed full of imagery emblematic of Amsterdam, including ferries on the water and rows and rows of bicycles. If ‘Fault in Our Stars’ doesn’t give you a good sense of what the European city looks like, this music video definitely will!
