Lawrence Rothman – “Oz Vs. Eden” (With Charli XCX) Video

The last we heard from Los Angeles weird auteur Lawrence Rothman, he was “California Paranoia” with Angel Olsen. As with that song, new single “Oz Vs. Eden” is nothing to write home about musically speaking — some ghoulish rock with demonic chants that’s apropos for the season, with Charli XCX providing some “na na”s and backing vocals — but the visuals are impeccable. Once again, Rothman worked with Floria Sigismondi on this one, and it’s set in a haunted house filled with all kinds of unspeakable, excessively creepy horrors. Rothman plays one of his alters, Kevin, and there’s also a pair of creepy siblings, a veiled old man, a gold-plated angel, and more. Check it out below.

UPDATE: Charli XCX has clarified her involvement with the song in a series of tweets:

Rothman’s album is out next year via Downtown Records. It was produced by Justin Raisen, and also features Kim Gordon and Ariel Pink.
