Stop everything you’re doing and listen to “Feed Me Diamonds” by MNDR. No, seriously. Stop rea
MNDR, I was convinced as soon as I heard “c’mon dismantle me.” Congratulations. This is some Björk (“Desired Constellation”) shit right here but I’m not mad. Not at all. I’m completely enamored by it.
And her interview with Spin in which she described the song pretty much sealed the deal:
[“Feed Me Diamonds” is] an homage to Marina Abramovíc. It’s weird to use the word inspire. I wish I could another one. But she’s really important to me, and a really important artist. I was going through a really tough time, a really dark time personally. I was really broke and hungry, and I had dysentery. Everything was the worst I could expect or experience. She claimed that her father, who was an important political figure in Yugoslavia, was assassinated by being fed diamonds. I read about it more and that was a way to overthrow tyrannical kings, to make it look like natural causes, because when you eat diamonds, your digestive system will shred and you bleed out. This album isn’t a happy go lucky pop record and it captures a lot of emotional moments in my life. Politically and emotionally, this one really brought it all together.
The world needs more darkly and decadently romantic pop music.
