Pharmakon shares new track ‘Body Betrays Itself’

Having just announced her follow up to last year's critically acclaimed Abandon, Pharmakon is sharing a taste of Bestial Burden with the track 'Body Betrays Itself', a harrowing piece of industrial noise that is conceptually about the fact that your own body can turn on you suddenly at any moment - a thought that is absolutely terrifying. This is the running theme throughout the album as Margaret Chardiet stated in a recent interview with Pitchfork:

"The record is about the disconnect between mind and body, and when I was bedridden for three weeks after my surgery, my mind was in Europe, on tour, doing my music, because that’s where I was supposed to be. It took a while for my brain to catch up to the reality of what my body was doing. It created this separation between the two that resulted in me feeling almost as though the body had this separate will from my own—just this vessel I was stuck inside of. I started reading a lot of different books and thinking about this separation and I realized that it’s what makes us human and not animals. That's a huge theme for the whole project, always."

Pharmakon will be hitting the road with Swans for five weeks in Europe at the end of September, as you hopefully know by now - her live show is one for the books so do not miss the chance to see the raw power that is Pharmakon in person.
