Listen to MNDR’s Marina Abramovic inspired single ‘Feed Me Diamonds’

MNDR just debuted the title track from her upcoming album Feed Me Diamonds. In an interview with WNYC she describes the influence of performance artist Marina Abramovic:

Marina Abramovic tests the limits of her audience, her body, and her mind. She has been an influence of mine throughout all of my performance art/multi-media groups and music. I am interested in exploring what makes people uneasy in performance and that relationship between reception and performance in a pop framework.

“Feed Me Diamonds”…is solely inspired by a claim that Marina herself made about her father’s death. She claimed that he was murdered by being fed finely ground diamonds which eventually caused internal bleeding in the G.I. tract. This was also a way that monarchs were overthrown: slowly being fed diamonds over a period of time until they eventually bled out.
With all of the themes on the album: love, loss, pain, ecstasy, politics, injustice, and emotions, Marina Abramovic inspired everything to come together…..Humbly speaking of course.
