Drab Majesty: Oxytocin

  • Posted on
  • 18.6.19


The third taste off the anticipated upcoming album, Modern Mirror by darkwave/synthpop visionaries, Drab Majesty, comes in the form of a simmering video for the new single, Oxytocin. Following Ellipsis and Long Division, the new track is another indication of the band's brilliance, and the beautiful accompanying video comes directed by Leigh Violet, starring the band's own Deb Demure and Mona D, including cameos from Kennedy Ashlyn (SRSQ), Jackie Dunn Smith, Dan Phillips (True Widow) and others.

"We're invited subtly inward, beyond the persona into a vulnerable zone, calling to the surface subtle insights about the alternate environs Drab Majesty seem to inhabit," says director, Leigh Violet. "A mood piece eschewing narrative in favor of aesthetic intuition, the video captures a fleeting space between dimensions that disappears again just when we begin to latch hold."

Mona D comments on the new single: "The music was written on a demo rig by Deb while in the backstage of a Warsaw venue waiting to soundcheck. We were on tour with Kaelan Mikla and they were soundchecking while Deb offered this 2-chord repetitive idea that he later expounded upon to create to music for the song. Lyrically the track points to the salad days of a relationship and it’s fleeting energy - The games that are played to maintain the magic. Oxytocin is this fleeting energy of the initial love bond - that seminal semi-permanent spark of enlightenment and obsession only to expire over the course of time and experience."

Drab Majesty have also announced their massive touring schedule, featuring support from fantastic acts, Xeno & Oaklander, SRSQ, Body of Light, and HIDE. See the dates below.
