Embrace the Thumping Industrial Noise of POLLDARIER “It’s All Me”

For millennia, mystics and wise people have tried to teach us that the path to enlightenment lies inside of us, and that to walk it we need to be fully embodied in the vessel our souls chose to walk the earthly plain in. The older I get, the more it makes sense to me, and the more I notice just how relentless the campaign to get us to dissociate is. Whether it’s cosmetic medical practices to give us designer bodies and consumption of goods to add meaning to our lives, or virtual life through social media and distal living through custom avatar selves, so much of our greedy culture thrives on separating us from each other and from our ourselves. You were born flawed, buy this and we will fix you. Watching the new POLLDARIER video for “It’s All Me,” a thumping industrial litany of anatomy as an offering to someone else, is making me think about the war for our bodies as a proxy for the war on our souls. It’s all me / I give it all to you. Polldarier envisions this self-sacrifice in a relationship or in life, but whatever the case, learning to truly be in and accept your physical self is the final boss of human life, and usually one we only reach on the brink of death. Along with “Myself” and “Drug,” “It’s All Me” is POLLDARIER’s newest single off his debut record that’s out this fall — stay tuned here. Right now, check out his new video for “It’s All Me” and try not to lose yourself today.

“It’s All Me” is my first love song, an avant-garde, experimental piece that holds two meanings for me. First, it explores the idea of giving yourself entirely to a relationship. This isn’t easy; you strive to retain as much of yourself as possible while simultaneously trying to give everything you have, which may still not be enough, leaving you with suffering. Secondly, it serves as a prayer to life: you give it your all, wishing for an end to the endless agony that life can sometimes feel like. You can’t take it anymore, and you yearn for peace and tranquility at last.
