The Body and Dis Fig are a natural pair. Each has pioneered instantly recognizable worlds of sound all their own that defy any traditional categorizations or boundaries. The Body - Lee Buford and Chip King - continually challenge any conventional conception of metal, collaborating with myriad artists and from the folk-leanings of their work with BIG|BRAVE to their groundbreaking work with the Assembly of Light Choir to the intensity of their collaborations with OAA or Thou.

Dis Fig, aka Felicia Chen, pushes electronic music into dark extremes, from warped DJ sets to avant production, from being a member of Tianzhuo Chen’s performance-art series, TRANCE, to being the vocalist with The Bug.

The Body and Dis Fig find kinship in reimagining what it means to make ‘heavy music’. Their debut, ‘Orchards of a Futile Heaven’, is the perfect synthesis of two forces, twisting melodicism and intoxicating rhythms, layering a dense miasma of distortion with intense beats, and a soaring voice clawing its way towards absolution.

‘Orchards of a Futile Heaven’ affirms The Body & Dis Fig’s distinct and unified tastes as skilled sound sculptors who have an exceptional ability to make deeply affecting music, as bracing as it is touching, as harrowing as it is awe-inspiring. Together, the three have harnessed their expansive artistry to make music that is profoundly emotional and staggering in its beauty.
