Purple / Black / White / Clear Splatter VinylDrab 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" thatsummer. The additional early cuts "Saturn Inc." and "Ultra Violet" have previously only beenavailable on digital or as CD bonus tracks. Now, along with the "Unarian Dances" 12" alsoreleased 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. Masteredby Josh Bonati with beautiful new packaging by Nathaniel Young.Drab Majesty is the project of Deb DeMure, the androgynous alter-ego of L.A.-basedmusician Andrew Clinco and partner Mona D. With its combination of reverb-drenchedguitars, synth bass lines, commanding vocals, and rhythmic drum machine beats, this projectis 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 80sNew 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 vesselthrough which outside ideas flow inward. But Drab Majesty is more than just a musicalproject _ it's a methodical experiment in the identity of creativity. The character DebDeMure is an enigma that eludes all expectations of gender and ego. When DeMure'simposing 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 seeminglyconflicting messages, between the high and the low, the drab and the divine.
