Australian artist ‘Max Lawrence’ releases the catchy new electro pop song ‘Confection’, featuring themes of desire and temptation. Subliminally, however, criticism of consumerism is also included lyrically.
Max Lawrence says about the song: “The candy is tempting you to buy it and is essentially just a bunch of chemicals manufactured in a certain way to get the consumer addicted for profit. It’s all ‘Buy Me’, ‘Eat Me’, ‘Love Me’, which we see a lot in the modern age with the commodification of the self through social media, reflecting this neo-capitalist fever dream we’re currently in.”.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a homo erotic representation of sweets and chocolate in my life. Another item I can tick off a list. The music video is directed by Max Lawrence and co-directed by Joshua Coles-Braun.
