DRAB MAJESTY DROP SWIRLING, SMOLDERING MUSIC VIDEO FOR “OXYTOCIN”


DRAB MAJESTY2 Drab Majesty has crash landed from the astral plane to bring us a new transmission: This time, a video for “Oxytocin.”



Drab Majesty's Mona D commented on "Oxycontin," saying: "The music was written on a demo rig by Deb while in the backstage of a Warsaw venue waiting to soundcheck. We were on tour with Kaelan Mikla and they were soundchecking while Deb offered this 2-chord repetitive idea that he later expounded upon to create to music for the song. Lyrically the track points to the salad days of a relationship and it’s fleeting energy - The games that are played to maintain the magic. Oxytocin is this fleeting energy of the initial love bond - that seminal semi-permanent spark of enlightenment and obsession only to expire over the course of time and experience."

On their new album Modern Mirror, Drab Majesty continue to dig their heels into modern paranoia, hypnotic melodies, and mystical lyricism. Inspired by their travels to Athens, Greece, Drab Majesty blow the dust off the antiquarian myth of Ovid’s “Narcissus” and craft a modern retelling anchored by meandering guitar, dreamscaping vocals, and glimmering synth. Each song 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.

A journey of self-reflection, nostalgia, love, beauty, and heartbreak told across eight addictive and emotional synth pop anthems, Modern Mirror reinvents classic musical tropes one post-modern tale at a time. Each song 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.
