Unknown To The I

Drab Majesty

Cat No: DAIS73LP

Drab 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” that summer. The additional early cuts “Saturn Inc.” and “Ultra Violet” have previously only been available on digital or as CD bonus tracks. Now, along with the “Unarian¬†Dances” 12″ also released 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. Mastered by Josh¬†Bonati¬†with beautiful new packaging by Nathaniel Young.

Drab Majesty is the project of Deb¬†DeMure, the androgynous alter-ego of L.A.-based musician Andrew¬†Clinco¬†and partner Mona D. With its combination of reverb-drenched guitars, synth bass lines, commanding vocals, and rhythmic drum machine beats, this project is a stark departure from¬†Clinco‚Äôs¬†previous stints as drummer in Marriages and Black Mare. Dubbed ‚ÄúTragic Wave‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúMid-Fi‚ÄĚ by¬†DeMure, Drab Majesty eloquently blends classic 80s New 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 inspiration for the songs is received from an other-worldly source and that Deb is merely a vessel through which outside ideas flow inward. But Drab Majesty is more than just a musical project ‚ÄĒ it‚Äôs a methodical experiment in the identity of creativity. The character Deb¬†DeMure¬†is an enigma that eludes all expectations of gender and ego. When¬†DeMure‚Äôs¬†imposing 6‚Äô 4‚ÄĚ figure assumes the stage, Deb‚Äôs playful, harlequin-esque¬†appearance, tempered by an ominous body language, and clashing with the dreamy, ethereal melodies comes across as a web of contrasts. The result is a perfect balance between seemingly conflicting messages, between the high and the low, the drab and the divine.
