No matter if she’s working out demons in King Woman or battling emotional decay as Miserable, Kristina Esfandiari ultimately finds comfort lurking in the shadows. The musician digs her heels into the stormy, lovelorn planet ofMiserable with her smoldering new video for “Loverboy” watch the Suspiria-influenced, Mitch Wells-directed clip in complete nowadays via BUST Magazine.


Esfandiari commented: “I wrote ‘Loverboy’ as a healing anthem for myself &amp hopefully other Womxn who have seasoned confusion or a sense of inadequacy due to gaslighting &amp objectification. I do not exist for somebody else’s pleasure or entertainment and that is basically what I’m singing in ‘Loverboy’. So lots of of us are created to really feel much less than human.”  She continues, “The Loverboy album as a complete is meant to be reflective on previous experiences that I really feel muted my voice. There was a time in my life exactly where I felt guilty about the immense quantity of internal fury I carried on a day-to-day basis. I attempted to tame it, attempted to push it additional down. I suppose this release has empowered me to connect with my personal anger &amp aggravation. It is triggered me to see that my personal anger is wholesome, completely valid and even vital. Playing these songs reside has been far more liberating than I could have ever imagined.”


The complete scope of Miserable will be unveiled with a double-EP release from Sargent Home: this brand new Loverboy EP and a reissue of the scarce Dog Days EP (set for release on October 26th). Recorded in differing states of Esfandiari’s individual and artistic evolution, the Dog Days and Loverboy duo serves as a riveting cross-section of an artist who has only grown bolder with time.


Recorded in the midst of an emotional and geographical purgatory for Esfandiari, Loverboy was culled from scribbled melodies and song sketches gathered from cross-nation plane rides. Plagued by destruction (the initial iteration ofLoverboy went down in flames—quite literally—thanks to a malfunctioned tough drive), the new collection of songs showcases Esfandiari’s somber, nightcrawling interpretation of pop music, packed with seething verses, lavish choruses, and reverb-driven bombast. Dog Days was a considerably wilier beast—it was borne from a weeklong bender in Brooklyn, fueled by Esfandiari’s want to attack her craft from a far more “upbeat” slant. And certainly, there’s one thing comforting and nostalgic in the shimmering dream pop of Dog Days. The EP has been remastered for Sargent House by Heba Kadry (Björk, Beach Home).
