Drab Majesty share new single and video “The Skin and the Glove”

Drab Majesty have shared a second track “The Skin and the Glove” from their forthcoming mini-album, ‘An Object in Motion’ to be released on August 25th via Dais Records.

The Skin and the Glove is reminiscent of the pop in the spirit of Stone Roses, Primal Scream, and The Glove. For the accompanying video Deb and Mona decided upon the one medium that reflects most accurately the way that memories seem sewn together by fragments of imagery. These glimpses into the personal and emotional aspects of touring were captured in far away lands like Europe, Canada, Mexico and even Tasmania. They attempt to compress the long passage of time and the effort that goes into playing in a band.

At 32-minutes, the release sits somewhere between an EP and a mini-album and marks the start of a stirring new chapter in Drab Majesty’slegacy. Written during a 2021 retreat to the remote coastal Oregon town of Yachats, Deb Demure leaned into the neo-psychedelic resonance of a uniquely bowl-shaped 12-string Ovation acoustic/electric guitar. After early morning hikes in the rain, Deb would record ambient guitar experiments the rest of the day, tapping into “flow states,” letting the sound lead the way. 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.
