HIGH-FUNCTIONING FLESH –
High-Functioning Flesh is an Electro-punk act from Los Angeles, CA. Merging their backgrounds and aesthetics of industrial, punk, and noise, Gregory Vand and Susan Subtract came together and formed HFF in 2012. After a successful self-released demo tape in 2013, the band went on to release their debut album, A Unity of Miseries – A Misery of Unities, on DKA Records the following year. The strength of their debut album turned heads inside the industry, and HFF put out their sophomore album, Definite Structures, with Dais Records in 2015. Continuing their relationship with Dais, HFF released a 7” single titled Human Remains in 2016.
Referencing the rack mount sy…nthesis and accented drum machine strikes of 80’s bands like Portion Control, Nitzer Ebb, and Cabaret Voltaire, HFF main-lined their punk resumes into the reaction creating a signature chemtrail of martial techno-inspired electronic mayhem shredded through a vocally dystopian finality. The three years since the band’s inception have seen HFF’s sound evolve from a handful of lo-fi flashback demos to aggressively realized synth-punk dance floor anthems – carving out a sound that would cause you to believe that HFF has warped time to an era completely their own.
