Drab Majesty have announced details of a new EP, entitled ‘An Object in Motion’, to be released on August 25th via Dais Records. They have also shared the majestic first single “Vanity” which features a rare guest vocal appearance from Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell whose iconic freefall voice adds poetic gravity to the doomed refrain: “If the valve breaks / then the earth quakes / and history finds a way / to put you in your place.
Drab Majesty’s Deb Demure comments: “As a long time listener and devotee of Slowdive, a band that literally shaped my DNA as a listener and musician, it was truly humbling to have Rachel offer her iconic vocal stylings to this song. Her voice is a sonic treasure and unmistakable. I’m infinitely grateful to call her a friend and am still pinching myself wondering – how did we get here?”
Rachel Goswell adds: “It’s no secret that I am a long time Drab Majesty fan so when Deb asked me some years ago now if I would be interested in collaborating it was an immediate yes. Honoured to give my voice to Vanity.”
The release sits somewhere between an EP and a mini-album and marks the start of a new chapter in Drab Majesty’s majestic legacy. Written during a 2021 retreat to the remote coastal Oregon town of Yachats, Deb Demure leaned into the neo-psychedelic resonance and ambient guitar experiments. These sessions were then refined or recreated, and later elevated further with key collaborations by Rachel Goswell (Slowdive), Justin Meldal-Johnson (Beck, M83, Air), and Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Circular Ruin Studio).
‘An Object in Motion’ will be released on August 25th via Dais. Pre-order here.
