Olivia Neutron-John: Olivia Neutron-John

Olivia Neutron-John's self-titled debut full length OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN is the first O N-J recorded output since 2014’s single INJURY TRAIN AND I'M NEVER GETTING OFF IT b/w VULNERABILITY. Finally emerging with this album is a sound that is similarly transcendent and meticulous, but with a newly articulated focus and even bolder minimalism. A. Nasty returns on keyboards and voice, now writing sinewy bass lines against the steady pulse of a drum machine. Lyrically it is sparse, but laden with meaning. A. Nasty's vocals are psychedelic yet straightforward, confident but desperate, calculated and unhinged all at the same time . Ambiguity drives OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN - the feeling of imminent danger in nearly going off the rails, just barely kept in line with the order of rhythm. OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN draws you into its hypnotic repetition, only to disorient with a catchy line gone awry and into a totally different atmosphere, like Ian Curtis playing on the moon. The punk sensibilities of O N-J's dance music ride a delicate balance between chaos and precision. The year is 2019 and fictions of genre and gender are even further behind us, making way for OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN .
