Breakout soul-pop outfit Lawrence has released a new song, “Casualty”, produced by rapper/singer/songwriter Jon Bellion. “Casualty” marks the first new music from the brother-and-sister-led outfit since the release of their Living Room LP last year.
As the band notes in a statement about the collaboration with Bellion,
Jon is not only one of our favorite artists, but he’s also a genuinely great guy, an amazing collaborator and a fellow New Yorker. We knew from the second he showed up to our first session in sweatpants that we were about to make some great music. I think with “Casualty,” we’ve found a sound that still feels like Lawrence while injecting some of Jon’s authentic style that we’ve always been so inspired by.
Led by a simple but moving piano riff and Clyde Lawrence‘s buttery lead vocals, the song moves into melodic, enveloping power pop territory thanks to Bellion’s hip-hop-oriented production, evoking sonic similarities to the lush, gospel-inflected tracks on Chance The Rapper‘s Coloring Book.
