Drab Majesty (us)
Fad Gadget meets Ziggy Stardust meets Genesis P-Orridge making lo-fi darkwave dreampop post-psychedelia occult-style shoegaze on cassettes (in his bedroom). This is DRAB MAJESTY. Drab Majesty began as a warbled transmission received via 4-track cassette in a Los Angeles bedroom in 2012 by Deb Demure. 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 Dances. The tape circulated through Los Angeles, and quickly found a place on the shelves of LA’s underground musical seekers. Drab Majesty came on the radar of DAIS Records. In 2015, Drab Majesty released Careless, the first LP which was received and recorded soley by Demure on living room floors and in cluttered spaces across the city. In the past two years Deb has been invited to support bands such as Cold Cave, 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. January of 2017 saw the release of Deb’s second album entitled The Demonstration. With extensive worldwide touring Drab Majesty will spread its message at Grauzone Festival. Something not to be missed!
