Listen: Marina, Pussy Riot collaborate on new remix of ‘Purge the Poison’

Marina's forthcoming album arrives on June 11

Marina (fka Marina and the Diamonds) has gotten a new remix from Pussy Riot of her recent single, “Purge the Poison.”

The new remix says Pussy Riot straying from their own sound to really lean into Marina’s electropop energy, offering up some whispered lyrics on top of Marina’s. Pussy Riot’s remix of “Purge the Poison” pushes the frenetic instrumentals of the original even further, turning it into a captivating spiral of a track.

“Political pop has always been my dream genre,” Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova explains. “Catchy and contagious, ‘Purge the Poison’ is an ear-worm, and it feeds your brain with the right questions and encourages you to think. I was blown away by this track, and it’s my pleasure to be on ‘Purge’s’ remix. In my part I reflect on topics of sisterhood, female and queer power, matriarchy, Christianity, and female sexuality.”
