Share new single "Long Division" from new album ‘Modern Mirror’
Out July 12th on Dais Records & announce extensive UK & European live dates for the Autumn.
To play Primavera + Birmingham, Nottingham & Glasgow shows next month
Following the recent announcement of new album, ‘Modern Mirror’, which is set for release on July 12th via Dais Records, LA duo DRAB MAJESTY have shared a second single, "Long Division".
They have also announced extensive UK and European tour dates for the Autumn, in addition to next month's shows which take in appearances at Primavera Barcelona as well as shows in Birmingham, Nottingham and Glasgow.
Blowing the dust off the antiquarian myth of Ovid’s “Narcissus”, Drab Majesty use its premise as groundwork for a modern reinterpretation. 'Modern Mirror' fuses synth-pop-noir aesthetics within the cautious instruction of Greek mythology and modern science fiction, birthing a hybrid of romantic dreamy malaise, captured for a future moment.
Speaking on new single "Long Division", the duo's Deb Demure comments:
"Long Division points to an elusive impasse one may face in a personal relationship; a fundamental difference whether it be culturally, physically, or emotionally, that reaches a tipping point where both people involved have ultimately lost sight of their own identities through the futile act of trying to accommodate one another. It’s about a crafted dissonance in
an attempt to harmonize.”
Over the course of two records the LA-based project of Deb Demure and Mona D has steadily built a devoted fan base worldwide with their singular hypnotic sound and mysterious, constantly-evolving presence. Following intense touring in support of the first two albums, including 2018 runs with The Smashing Pumpkins and Deafheaven, they escaped to the inspirational landscapes of Athens, Greece to channel the songs for their most ambitious album creation yet: ‘Modern Mirror’.
Each song on the record 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. It's 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.
'Modern Mirror' was produced by Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv) and mastered by Dave Cooley, with appearances by Jasamine White-Gluz (No Joy) and Justin Meldal-Johnson (NIN, Beck, M83, Air) with packaging and design by Juan Mendez of Jealous God/Silent Servant.
‘Modern Mirror’ will be released on July 12th via Dais Records.
