DRAB MAJESTY ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘MODERN MIRROR’ Due out July 12 on Dais Records /…
Electronic duo Xeno & Oaklander are most comfortable in the indecipherable and indescribable. With a curious video for the sultry dance track “Insomnia,” which was directed and edited by vocalist Liz Wendelbo, Xeno & Oaklander tread deeper into the unknown. “Insomnia” is the second single from the twosome’s sixth album Hypnos, out today from Dais Records.
The partnership between New York electro-minimalists Xeno & Oaklander spans all the way back to 2004, with no shortage of reinvention and experimentation coloring those years. The next act in X&O’s storied catalog is the band’s first release for Dais Records, an LP titled Hypnos, due out on March 8.
After releasing post-punk masterpiece The Demonstration and embarking on several massive tours last year, Drab Majesty is back, and on the road in North America now alongside Deafheaven and Uniform. Focusing on the aesthetics of cult ritual and the devastating power of music, Drab Majesty’s live show has become a phenomenon in itself. Fronted by interdimensional muse Deb Demure and anchored by Mona D on keyboard accompaniment, Drab Majesty infuses goth with pulsing synth and shimmery “tragic wave” flourishes.
