Los Angeles dark wavers Drab Majesty, consisting of Deb Demure and Mona D, returned to DC on Saturday to open Deafheaven at 9:30 Club. Paivi was there to capture the action!
Since forming in 2011, first as a solo project then as a duo, Drab Majesty has released several albums on Dais Records — most recently The Demonstration in January 2017. That record heralded several visits to DC, where they have been well received by dark pop enthusiasts.
Watch the official music video for “Too Soon to Tell” by Drab Majesty on YouTube:
“It’s full of atmospheric spacescapes, dark wave melodies, and themes that breach the limits of time and space,” said Cvlt Nation in praise of the album. Drab Majesty continue to create those atmospheric spacescapes opening Deafheaven across the country through Aug. 18, when they wrap at home in LA.
