STREAM DRAB MAJESTY’S ‘THE DEMONSTRATION’ LP IN ITS ENTIRETY
Album out tomorrow on DAIS / See Drab Majesty on tour with Cold Cave now
“It’s the dirty decadence of black-lit dance floor, the after-party comedown, and the next day regret of debauchery rolled into one." - Punktastic
 
"It’s more than everything you dreamed it would be. It’s full of atmospheric spacescapes, darkwave melodies, and themes that breach the limits of time and space." - CVLT Nation
 
"...inhabits that post punk black hole that sucks you straight in, shooting you full of musical rays and leaving you wanting more…  supremely confident and lovely…” - Echoes & Dust
 
In anticipation of tomorrow’s release of Drab Majesty’s sophomore LP The Demonstration, the band is streaming the album in its entirety now via BrooklynVegan.  Recorded by Josh Eustis (NIN, Telefon Tel Aviv), The Demonstration features 11 new songs from Drab Majesty, who began in 2012 as a warbled transmission received via 4-track cassette in a dim, Los Angeles bedroom.  The entity known as Deb Demure, an interdimensional muse of sorts, lent an otherworldly vision to a human contact; one to be realized through meticulously composed lo-fi recordings. Focusing on the aesthetics of cult ritual and the devastating power of music, Deb sought an alternative way to share the cosmic agenda. Culminating in a cassette titled Unarian DancesDrab Majesty’s manifesto to humanity was revealed: revel in the power of artistic influences that reside beyond the self.
 
In 2015, Drab Majesty released Careless, the first LP which was received and recorded solely by Demure on living room floors and in cluttered spaces across the city.  After three pressings and an imminent fourth, Careless remains a fixture in LA’s somber yet sublime nightlife and a noted contribution to the murkier subcultures abroad.  Wielding a left-handed guitar, Deb employs a unique style of arpeggiated finger picking, producing vast and organic musical textures reminiscent of Vinny Reilly (Durutti Column) with the anthemic power of Sisters of Mercy and Cocteau Twins. In the past two years Deb has been invited to support bands such as Psychic TV, Clan of Xymox, The Frozen Autumn, Prayers, and label mates Youth Code and King Dude.  From its incarnation, Drab Majesty was a solo act; an interplay between guitar and triggered machines. In 2016, with growing audiences and heightened interest, Drab expanded into a duo, employing the keyboard accompaniment of far-out twin, Mona D – filling out frequencies and upping the spectacle of the live performance.
