A heady air of dislocation envelops Drab City’s debut album, where songs of innocence and experience merge with dub, hip-hop, dream-pop and jazzy soundtrack vibes to intoxicating effect. 

Lyrically, these songs often project punkish angst and resentment. Yet the casual listener might not notice the violence as the music itself is far from abrasive. Dreamy and ethereal, a foundation of flute, vibraphone, and jazzy guitar chord melody can switch to drum machines or funk-inflected girl-group pop at a moment’s notice. At once catchy and unfamiliar, the melodic, welcoming soundscapes are a Trojan horse for the band’s antisocial outlook.

Drab City — Troubled Girl (Official Video)

Mainz-based duo Sheebaba – who you may have seen this summer at the Congés Annulés – will open for Drab City. They describe themselves as noise, poetry and drumloops, genre-bending, art rock, dark wave, experimental, goth, industrial, fuzzy and glitchy, conceptual, performative, colours of the rainbow, against hate. Full stop”, they say. But you’ll see that they’re even much more than that.
