New Jersey-born, Berlin-based Dis Fig, real name Felicia Chen, has announced her debut album, PURGE.
Chen has made her name primarily as a DJ over the last few years via brutalist, confronting sets, and PURGE will be her first solo release proper. The LP will land via New York label PTP in March and, according to the press release, explores Chen's "own vulnerability through varying degrees of noise, vocal migrations, and orchestral composition." "PURGE is about confronting the feelings which you have been avoiding. Consciously or subconsciously," says Chen. "Feelings you want to be feeling or 'should' be feeling but you can’t because your body won’t let you. Because maybe it knows it’s not safe for you."
PURGE will be released digitally and on cassette on March 15 and can be pre-ordered here. You can find a stream of the album's first single, "Unleash," below, along with the artwork and tracklisting.
