1. Unknown to the I
2. Ultra Violet
3. Saturn Inc



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 hisdebut album "Careless" that summer. The additional early cuts "Saturn Inc."and "Ultra Violet" have previously only been available on digital or as CDbonus tracks. Now, along with the "Unarian Dances" 12" also released onMarch 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 byNathaniel 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 it's combination ofreverb-drenched guitars, synth bass lines, commanding vocals, and rhythmicdrum machine beats, this project is a stark departure from Clinco's previousstints as drummer in Marriages and Black Mare. Dubbed "Tragic Wave" and"Mid-Fi" by DeMure, Drab Majesty eloquently blends classic 80s New Waveand hints of early 4AD with a futuristic originality.A talented multi-instrumentalist, DeMure composes all of the elements ofDrab Majesty. However, rather than taking personal credit for the music,DeMure insists that the inspiration for the songs is received from an otherworldly source and that Deb is merely a vessel through which outside ideasflow inward. But Drab Majesty is more than just a musical project - it's amethodical experiment in the identity of creativity. The character Deb DeMureis an enigma that eludes all expectations of gender and ego. When DeMure'simposing 6' 4" figure assumes the stage, Deb's playful, harlequin-esqueappearance, tempered by an ominous body language, and clashing with thedreamy, ethereal melodies comes across as a web of contrasts. The result is aperfect balance between seemingly conflicting messages, between the highand the low, the drab and the divine.
