DRAB MAJESTY FALL INTO THEIR PRIME AND “OUT OF SEQUENCE”


Drab Majesty The release of Drab Majesty’s shimmering new album Modern Mirror is tomorrow, and the intergalactic duo is marking the occasion with a fourth and final single. The track, album closer “Out Of Sequence,” encapsulates the echoic, otherworldly undertones that pervade Modern Mirror. The world will get to hear Drab Majesty’s synth-fueled masterpieces in a live setting starting July 24, when the band embarks on a lengthy US and European tour. A full itinerary can be found below.

Modern Mirror was recorded after a spat of intense touring alongside The Smashing Pumpkins and Deafheaven, leading Deb and Mona to decamp to the sun-bleached landscapes of Athens, Greece. Inspiring their most ambitious work yet, the picturesque landscapes and mystical beauty of the country fuels the album’s eight blissed-out tracks. The album even draws inspiration from the myth of Ovid’s “Narcissus”, using its premise as groundwork for a modern reinterpretation.

Each song on Modern Mirror is a crucial part of this fantastical narrative, 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. While its inspirations are myriad, Modern Mirror is ultimately 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.

Marking the band’s most collaborative effort to date, Modern Mirror was produced by Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv), mastered by Dave Cooley, and includes appearances from Jasamine White-Gluz (No Joy) and Justin Meldal-Johnson (NIN, Beck, M83, Air).

Catch Drab Majesty on the road this summer and fall, and stay tuned for more dispatches.
