Margaret Chardiet, better known as noise provocateur Pharmakon, is gearing up to release her new album ContactIn anticipation of the record's arrival tomorrow (March 31) via Sacred Bones, she's unveiled a visual for "Somatic," co-directed by herself and Latex Lucifer. The album's artwork — which depicts Chardiet slicked with sweat and trapped in the grip of several clammy hands — serves as facsimile for the video, which takes "touchy-feely" to a whole new level; bodies rub against bodies, shedding skin, moisture and mucus. Ultimately, the corporeal themes are a red herring — towards the clip's end, we're presented with a man's wounded back, as well as a message written in scars: "Exist outside body." If only it were that simple. Watch below, and scroll down to view Chardiet's upcoming tour dates.

Pharmakon's Contact LP is out March 31 via Sacred Bones. Get it here.
