DRAB MAJESTY ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘MODERN MIRROR’

DRAB MAJESTY ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘MODERN MIRROR’ Due out July 12 on Dais Records / Check out the video for lead single “Ellipsis”

Drab Majesty have announced details of a new album, Modern Mirror, set for release on July 12th via Dais Records, and have shared a first single and touring plans.   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.
Blowing the dust off the antiquarian myth of Ovid’s “Narcissus”, Drab Majesty use its premise as groundwork for a modern reinterpretation. 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.   New single Ellipsis romantically plays up the distorted concept of courting through modern technology in a world that has yet to adapt. It has been brought to life in a video directed by Thomas McMahan.   Watch and share the video for Modern Mirror's lead single “Ellipsis” now via YouTubehttps://youtu.be/LjBo82hQXFA 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.  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 byJasamine White-Gluz (No Joyand Justin Meldal-Johnson (NIN, Beck, M83, Air) with packaging and design byJuan Mendez of Jealous God/Silent Servant.   Modern Mirror  will be released on July 12th via Dais Records.
