Marika Hackman has debuted another taster of her 5* Dork rated new album ‘Any Human Friend’, which is set to arrive on 9th August.
Titled ‘all night’, it’s rather – y’know – saucy, or “no holds barred” as the press release suggests.
“I thought it would be exciting to write a really overtly sexual song about a woman from the perspective of a woman,” Marika explains. “You don’t hear much about sex between women in music, or if you do its usually from a fetishised male perspective, I thought I’d reclaim a bit of that power”.
You can read more from Marika, and that top marks review, in the new issue of Dork, out now.
