False Wall over Brick Wall

I have a galley kitchen with wall cabinets on only one side. The other wall is brick. I'd like to add wall cabinets. I know I could attach the cabinets directly to the wall. Howevewr, I also lack outlets. So my plan is to construct a standard framed wall, and attach it to the brick. The question is how? I figure on using Tapcon screws but don't know if I should get really long ones and go through the studs. attach 2x4 by 12" perpendicular to the studs, and use the Tapcon, or metal brackets? Any thoughts?

If you can attatch your new wall to the floor and the ceiling then you wont have to attach it to the brick.

Thanks, YEah I started thinking that right after I hit send
The floor is a slab, so I will use anchors or concrete screws, above are joists running Perpendicular to the wall, so it should be a no brainer.
