The solo project of the enigmatic Deb Demure: Drab Majesty has made an undeniable impact on the underground since his crushing album debut “Careless” on Dais Records in 2015. Following a CD compilation, a relentless tour schedule, three singles and the followup LP “The Demonstration” early this year, Drab Majesty returns with the announcement of a fall tour and the somber 7” single “Oak Wood” b/w the beautiful ambient reflection “Egress”.


“Oak Wood" was song received a couple weeks following the Ghostship tragedy in Oakland.  The DAIS family lost one of it's most beloved members, Cash Askew, and its song title is a literal translation of her last name; In Old Norse being Eiki (oak) Skogr (wood) thus making Oak Wood.  I found the name to be symbolically poignant in light of the events and wanted this to be a tribute piece.  The lyrics grapple with the existence of a god in a time of such utter sadness, hopelessness, and confusion.

“Egress" is meant to serve as a faint departure or daydream; spaces I often find myself drifting to as a means of escape when disturbing thoughts cyclically plague my brain.  Side A confronts the issue and Side B acts as a mental respite.  Making instrumental guitar pieces has always been an act of meditation and I hope if only for a brief moment, the listener can wander and lose themselves within the sonic imagery offered in this piece.

Released September 2017 on Dais Records.
