Drab Majesty - Modern Mirror Clear Green Vinyl Edition
Drab Majesty
Modern Mirror Clear Green Vinyl Edition
LP | 2021 | US | Original (Dais)
23,99 €*
Release:2021 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Over the course of two records the LA-based project of Deb Demure and Mona D has steadily built a devoted fan base worldwide with their singular hypnotic sound and mysterious, constantly-evolving presence. Following intense touring in support of the first two albums, including 2018 runs with The Smashing Pumpkins and Deafheaven, they escaped to the inspirational landscapes of Athens, Greece to channel the songs for their most ambitious album creation yet: 'Modern Mirror'. Blowing the dust off the antiquarian myth of Ovid's "Narcissus", Drab Majesty use its premise as groundwork for a modern reinterpretation. Each song on the record tells a piece of the story in which the listener's own self-identity has become warped and dissociated through rapidly expanding technology, losing touch with the origins of their own personalities. 'Modern Mirror' fuses synth-pop-noir aesthetics within the cautious instruction of Greek mythology and modern science fiction, birthing a hybrid of romantic dreamy malaise, captured for a future moment. It's a journey of self-reflection, nostalgia, love, beauty, and heartbreak told across eight addictive and emotional synth pop anthems - a seemingly classic tale delivered unblinkingly through the frame of the modern world. It was produced by Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) and mastered by Dave Cooley, with appearances by Jasamine White-Gluz (No Joy) and Justin Meldal-Johnson (nin, Beck, M83, Air) with packaging and design byJuan Mendez of Jealous God/Silent Servant.

Deb Demure's powerful presence and hypnotic sound has firmly defined the identity of Drab Majesty. After releasing the debut album, Careless, Drab Majesty split time between touring and studios, piecing together the ideas for the follow-up album, "The Demonstration", an album depicting Deb Demure as only one part of Drab Majesty's overall being and storytelling saga. Starting off with the instrumental "Induction", Drab Majesty sets up an ethereal backdrop for which the rest of the album follows. Tracks such as "Dot In The Sky" and "39 By Design" (a song pointing to the doomsday Heaven's Gate cult) use lush, shoegaze approach to portray the fragility of humanity's loss of self, looking only to the heavens for answers. "Cold Souls" flawlessly executes Drab Majesty's arpeggiated finger picking signature, complete with washes of hazy noise and atmospheric reverb. With the addition of Mona D. to Drab Majesty's mysterious portfolio, songs from The Demonstration perpetually create new meanings and depth with every listen. After Drab Majesty wraps up The Demonstration with "Behind The Wall", one is left wondering what kind of identity is truly their own.

Careless
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Dais)

Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Currently the drummer for Los Angeles lo-fi rock ensemble Marriages and having honed an unorthodox home recording style, Deb Demure of Drab Majesty sources his sounds from a repository of “mid-fi” synthesizers and other lesser-quality instruments. Following the release of his debut cassette EP, Unarian Dances, he also shared a split 12” with synth pop forefathers, Eleven Pond. During the Spring of 2015, Drab Majesty signed with Dais Records and released his first single, "Unknown to the I," as a introduction for his first initial foray into the album format, romantically titled Careless. Written over the course of two years, Careless is a compendium of songs that have outlasted a malicious burglary of his studio, his struggles with substance addiction, and most recently, the death of his beloved grandmother. Dreamy dark shoegaze in the vein of Felt, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Depeche Mode, The Cure. Limited edition of 300 copies.

In The Smoggy Orange Light Of A New Millennium, The Young Deb Demure Would Take The Bus, Once A Week, From His Home In Crumbling Hollywood To His Grandmother's Apartment, Nestled In The Pastel Pristineness Of Beverly Hills. During These Visits, Deb Couldn't Help But Notice The Disconnect Between The Glow Of His Grandmother's Temple, And The Downtrodden, Alienated Figures That Populated The Seats Of The Mass Transit That Took Him There. Week After Week, He Would Observe These Characters: Fading B-Movie Starlets, Leisure-Suited Alcoholics And Forgotten Civil Servants. But One Fateful Commute Home, As The Twilight Waned To The Purple Los Angeles Night, He Realized These Figures Were Not As Lost As They Appeared - There Was A Nobility In Their Failure, Reflective Of The Dignity Of The City's Vanishing Golden Era. They Were Survivors, In Need Of A Voice: A Spokesperson For Every Color Of Hope And Hopelessness, Transcendent Of Gender And Time; Drab Majesty Became Deb's Musical Podium For This Undertaking. Raised In A Music-Centric Household, Deb Would Find The Time To Teach Himself To Play His Father's Right-Handed Guitar Upside Down And Left-Handed; An Unorthodox Fashion From Where His Earliest Understanding Of Chords And Harmony Were Conceived. Exploring The Bins Of Discarded Vinyl In His Neighborhood Thrift Stores, His Toolkit Expanded With The Subterranean Sonic Gems Of The Recent Past. Influences Range From The Virtuosic Arpeggiated Guitar Work Of Felt's Maurice Deebank And The Grittier Pop Progressions Of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry's Chris Reed As Well As Steve Severin From Siouxsie And The Banshees. He Also Studied The Harmonic Oscillations And Utilization Of The Occult Power Of Vibratory Frequency Present In New Age Sounds Of Greek Artist, Iasos. In Terms Of Orchestration, He Consciously Culls From The Seaside Maximalism Of Martin Dupont And Mechanized Grooves Of Early Depeche Mode. Like A Dualistic Pendulum, His Vocals Swing From A Preistly Baritone To A Choir Boy's Falsetto Reflecting The Sepul...

Drab Majesty's First Release For Dais Records Was The "Unknown To The I" Cassette In 2015, Which Featured The Title Track That Would Later Appear On His Debut Album "Careless" That Summer. The Additional Early Cuts "Saturn Inc." And "Ultra Violet" Have Previously Only Been Available On Digital Or As Cd Bonus Tracks. Now, Along With The "Unarian Dances" 12" Also Released On March 26, These Songs Are Finally Made Available On Vinyl In 45 Rpm 12" Format, Bringing All Early Drab Majesty Material From The Careless Era (2012-2015) To Vinyl. Mastered By Josh Bonati With Beautiful New Packaging By Nathaniel Young. Drab Majesty Is The Project Of Deb Demure, The Androgynous Alter-Ego Of L.A.-Based Musician Andrew Clinco And Partner Mona D. With Its Combination Of Reverb-Drenched Guitars, Synth Bass Lines, Commanding Vocals, And Rhythmic Drum Machine Beats, This Project Is A Stark Departure From Clinco's Previous Stints As Drummer In Marriages And Black Mare. Dubbed "Tragic Wave" And "Mid-Fi" By Demure, Drab Majesty Eloquently Blends Classic 80s New Wave And Hints Of Early 4ad With A Futuristic Originality. A Talented Multi-Instrumentalist, Demure Composes All Of The Elements Of Drab Majesty. However, Rather Than Taking Personal Credit For The Music, Demure Insists That The Inspirationfor The Songs Is Received From An Other-Worldly Source And That Deb Is Merely A Vessel Through Which Outside Ideas Flow Inward. But Drab Majesty Is More Than Just A Musical Project _ It's A Methodical Experiment In The Identity Of Creativity. The Character Deb Demure Is An Enigma That Eludes All Expectations Of Gender And Ego. When Demure's Imposing 6' 4" Figure Assumes The Stage, Deb's Playful, Harlequin-Esque Appearance, Tempered By An Ominous Body Language, And Clashing With The Dreamy, Ethereal Melodiescomes Across As A Web Of Contrasts. The Result Is A Perfect Balance Between Seemingly Conflicting Messages, Between The High And The Low, The Drab And The Divine.
