Rock provocateur Marika Hackman releases her new album Any Human Friend. “This whole record is me diving into myself and peeling back the skin further and further, exposing myself in quite a big way. It can be quite sexual, It’s blunt, but not offensive. It’s mischievous.”
Hackman says there’s also depth to her carnal knowledge: Any Human Friend is ultimately about how, as she puts it, “We all have this lightness and darkness in us.”
London based Marika took the album’s title from a documentary about four-year-olds interacting with dementia patients in senior homes. At one point, two little girls confer about their experience there, with one musing on how it’s great to make “any human friend,” whether old or young. “When she said that it really touched a nerve in me. It’s that childlike view where we really accept people, are comfortable with their differences.”
Any Human Friend has been co-produced by David Wrench (Frank Ocean, The xx, Let’s Eat Grandma) and Marika herself, and exhibits a sharper and more liberated sound than seen before.
