Miserable: Loverboy

Kristina Esfandiari's gazey/dreampop project, Miserable, is coming up with an imposing new release that pairs 2014's brilliant Dog Days, with a new EP comprised of four brand new songs. A little after Gasoline, the new EP's title track was just unveiled, alongside a great looking video, directed by Mitch Wells and heavily influenced by seventies horror/giallo aesthetics, and more specifically the 1977 Dario Argento classic, Suspiria.

Kristina comments: "I wrote Loverboy as a healing anthem for myself & hopefully other Womxn who have experienced confusion or a sense of inadequacy due to gaslighting and objectification. I don’t exist for someone else’s pleasure or entertainment and that’s essentially what I’m singing in Loverboy. So many of us are made to feel less than human."  She continues, "The Loverboy album as a whole is meant to be reflective on past experiences that I feel muted my voice. There was a time in my life where I felt guilty about the immense amount of internal fury I carried on a daily basis. I tried to tame it, tried to push it further down. I suppose this release has empowered me to connect with my own anger and frustration. It’s caused me to see that my own anger is healthy, absolutely valid and even necessary. Playing these songs live has been more liberating than I could have ever imagined."
