Hear Lawrence Rothman’s New Charli XCX Goth-Pop Collaboration, ‘Oz Vs. Eden’

UPDATE: Charli XCX has deleted her tweets from this morning and posted a congratulatory note, which you can see below. Lawrence Rothman also tweeted his thanks to Charli for contributing her “background vocals.”

UPDATE: In a series of tweets to Stereogum, Charli XCX has disowned her work on this song, claiming she’d asked Rothman to be uncredited as a backing vocalist.


Lawrence Rothman is hard at work on his forthcoming album (due out in 2016), and now the Californian polymorph has released a video for his new track with Charli XCX called “Oz Vs. Eden.” It’s a jarring visual directed by Floria Sigismondi that accompanies an unsettling pop song, one that dips its toe into both traditional R&B harmonizing as well as deeply odd electronic skitters.
