Geoffrey O'Connor - Fan Fiction (2014)

Melbourne artist Geoffrey O'Connor has attempted to distance himself from the notion of mere retromanticism in the past, but his image is a clear evocation of a particular pop cultural momentЧspecifically, the 1980s. He's always shrouded in dry ice and purple lights, his hair bleached blonde; on the album insert for his latest album, Fan Fiction, he's leaning coolly on a Roland synthesiser. Without knowing the first note, you can already hear the plastic click of a drum machine.

Fan Fiction continues the sonic retro-futurism of his solo debut Vanity Is Forever, as O'Connor layers chintzy, thin-sounding synths over reverberating disco guitars, guiding it all with his breathy, nasal whine. Every dazzling melody is sandwiched together, maximalist and swollen in a dizzying spectacle. Even when O'Connor slows it down, there's too much going on to feel truly settled. O'Connor counterbalances, or maybe accentuates, his dark lyrical matter with lusty 4/4 rhythms. On some tracks, like early single "Jacqueline", it's easy to mistake a sense of lyrical tragedy for a good time, but Fan Fiction's core conceit lies in asking you whether they're mutually exclusive after all.

O'Connor frequently nods backwards in time, but he's also part of a contemporary moment in Australian music. Fellow Chapter acts like polymath Darren Sylvester and leather-daddies Standish/Carlyon, as well as recent Remote Control signees Client Liaison, are all gauzy embodiments of arch seduction, turbo-capitalist production, and indulgence. In the New Australian New Wave, corporate culture is mined for aesthetic value, yuppies are the new hipsters, and nihilism has been usurped by the possibility offered by wealth.
