A softly hewn yet gorgeously widescreen, folk-washed outing from Dinked alumni, Conor J O'Brien - 'That Golden Time' gleams with a suitably halcyon glow as it swishes from weighty balladry to a gloriously jazzy finale.

The understated poetry within 'That Golden Time' is effortlessly carried by gorgeous melodies and sublime instrumentation. In “No Drama”, as the narrator pleads for respite from the vicissitudes of life, O’Brien equates an orchestral swell with an appeal for quiet beauty and peace. “Behind That Curtain” is a rare moment of musical discombobulation as a solemn, soulful ballad hands over to a jazzy coda, “It’s the sound of deafening alarm bells inside your head,” remarks O’Brien. Exploring these themes further, there is also a secondary image of a coin on the artwork (an Irish twenty pence piece) to which O’Brien explains: “The types of physical currency change throughout time, but the essential power relationships and bartering principles persevere throughout the cosmetic changes.”
