Watch Charli XCX Perform “Stay Away” Atop A Pile Of Cassette Tape

According to tracks like “Nuclear Seasons,” UK singer Charli XCX delivers sticky, indelible hooks laid onto gothic-shading synth pop tracks. It’s no surprise that “Stay Away” works in a very similar way; based on the people voting in it, I definitely think the song will have a strong showing on the forthcoming Pazz & Jop poll put out by the Village Voice. Watch a stripped-back take on the cut, filmed atop a spiderweb-like pile of cassette tape, down below.

The “Stay Away” 12″ is out now on This Is Music.
