Next week, the South by Southwest music conference in Austin will propel a handful of young acts to next-big-thing status, and one safe bet for ascension is London-based pop singer Charli XCX, who plays her first New York show tonight as part of Neon Gold’s New Shapes party. Something like a junior-varsity Lykke Li, Charli XCX doles out gloomily sensual electro-pop ditties with titles like “Stay Away” and “Nuclear Seasons”; the music feels destined for adoption by people who make a living packaging glamour. With a handful of other Austin-bound buzz bands, including Sweden’s Niki & the Dove and local synth-rock dudes Ghost Beach.
