Exclusive: Drab Majesty Share "Out of Sequence" Video

Los Angeles synth-pop duo Drab Majesty have shared their Muted Widows-directed video for their new song “Out of Sequence” exclusively at Paste. The track will appear on their new album Modern Mirror, out on July 12 via Dais Records.

Paste featured Modern Mirror on our list of 10 Albums We’re Most Excited About in July, commenting, “Drab Majesty’s lustrous synth escapades and intergalactic bleeps are just as slick as their commentary on modern day romance and personal conundrums.”

Their new track “Out of Sequence” describes the disconnect between one’s former, current and idealized selves. There’s a longing that can never quite be quenched, and the song’s moody post-punk guitars, wistful vocals and valiant synths echo a similarly dogged sentiment yet ultimately tragic fate.

“Out of Sequence points at the conscious/unconscious reworking of our personal histories to suit the image we strive to attain,” the duo says of the track. “It’s about a certain kind of decade dysphoria that makes us long for another era—a modern day conceptual nod to the Beach Boys ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times.’”
