Jacksonville, FL Alternative Rock project PHARMACOSE has released the third single, “If I Were Better,” and second literary part, from their ongoing musical and literary project, Ascension’s Constraint.

Not only does the newest track reject aural expectations, it adds a deeper layer of intrigue with a nuanced story, reminiscent of such music storytellers as Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, underpinned by poignant lyrics and a relatable experience that holds listeners’ attention as they lose themselves in the composition.

PHARMACOSE Releases Newest Single, “Pretty Porcelain”


Jacksonville, FL Alternative Rock project PHARMACOSE has released the newest single off of their new LP, Prescription Fiction, “Pretty Porcelain.” A carefully constructed audio-journey through the ups and downs of bipolar disorder, and the increasing prevalence of mental illness in modern society, this second piece from Prescription Fiction expounds on the frustration and rewards of creating art in what often seems to be a vacuum. Despite the dark depth and complexity of the subjects, the album is an alt-rock gem of massive choruses, distorted guitars, and brutal percussion.
