about

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, the debut Visual EP from experimental club drone duo BODY OF WORK.

The EP is a long drawn out scream into the storm of rightwing bile and outright fascism we are currently living through. BODY OF WORK, Tom Moore and darken malign, are both non-binary femmes and ex-catholics, based in Berlin, with lives tied either side of Britain and Northern Ireland.

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD is a cacophony of spoken word, drones, samples, drowned vocals, field recordings of bird song, evangelical christians, aeroplanes, looped screams from darken’s child, pushed hard through some minimal effects and electronic fuckery. All of the music is improvised with each piece recorded live in one take and on one track.

BODY OF WORK’s musical influences stem from wasted youths festering in subcultures. They channel the meta narrative of CRASS and the femme sensibility of internet genres such as NITECORE. They draw from experimental club culture currently liberating dancefloors from homogenous dudes and binary beats, acts such as Angel Ho, Swan Meat, Exit Sense, Zuir and WWWINGS.

They are shameless hystorians of digital artefacts. Their Visual EP is as much Beyonce’s Lemonade as Marianne Faithful and Derek Jarman’s Broken English. Lest we forget that the music video was born out of queer underground film. It’s pre 20th century cinema motives expressed through youtube hi-jacking.

Track Name: Crows And Evangelists
Hello!
Track Name: Holy Lathe
a steel spring
a test of strength
a severed hand
a wollen glove

a puppy bite
a petty thief
a stolen egg
a wealth divide

an absent queen
a wasted wish
a ticker tape
a bored parade

a bathroom chain
a pintail comb
a curled lock
a red ribbon

a cherry bomb
a leap over
a jammed gun
a wage gap

a struck match
a lone grave
a dark path
a single shot

a charred dollar
a ski mask
a maxed out card
a burning farm

a broken crib
a ply board house
a silver gate
a human cage

a ticket out
an easy road
a loose wheel
an out stretched arm

a heavy pedal
a cheap date
a hot trigger
a holy lathe
