Miserable: Gasoline

Back in 2014 we listed Dog Days by Miserable at the top spot of our EPs of the Year list. It was a set of four excellent single-word titled songs, which demonstrated the artist's attempt on a more upbeat style of songwriting that worked wonders. Four years later, Dog Days is being remastered  by Heba Kadry (Bj√∂rk, Beach House) and re-released for Sargent House alongside another EP, Loverboy.

Kristina Esfandiari wrote the entirety of Loverboy during a flight, at a time when she was traveling often between coasts, moving permanently to New York. "I had chills running down my body for a couple of minutes," she describes. "I wrote all of the lyrics out on napkins. I could hear how I wanted everything to sound." The initial audio files for Loverboy were lost following a freak accident which destroyed hard-drives and back-ups, and  had to be completely re-recorded, and after a long time it's finally coming out in the world.

Gasoline, the first single from the new EP, sounds close to the vividness of Dog Days, jangly and colorful, and with a heavy dose of sweet melancholy.

Loverboy / Dog Days comes out October 26, 2018 on Sargent House.
