New Single "Damned To Love You" Streaming on Adult Swim 

Streaming via Adult Swim

Adult Swim Singles have just shared a new song from Miserable as the sixteenth entry in the 2019-2020 program. “Damned to Love You” presents a new phase for Miserable, the shoegaze meets indie-pop endeavor of Kristina Esfandiari (also known as the singer for the expansive doom-metal group King Woman), and marks the first release since 2018’s Loverboy EP. The new single expands on the auspicious atmospherics of the EP, as Esfandiari’s voice scales cresting waves of nostalgia, buoyed by plucked guitar arpeggios drenched in 60’s style spring reverb. LISTEN TO “DAMNED TO LOVE YOU”: https://www.adultswim.com/music/singles/16

Kristina Esfandiari's Songs of Sorrow // The Brooklyn Rail 

Kristina Esfandiari's Songs of Sorrow

Feature via The Brooklyn Rail

In the mid-2000s, when Pedestal Magazine still published fiction, we ran a short story that centered on a band capable of playing any song ever requested. After a number of gigs, disillusioned with their listeners and the world, the group performs a song that, according to legend, had resulted in the suicide of each person who heard it. Mayhem ensues, leading to the self-destruction of everyone in the club, including the band members. 

Don't worry, listening to Uncontrollable, the 2016 release by Kristina Esfandiari a.k.a. Miserable, will not prompt an irresistible urge to leap from a tall building or swallow a handful of barbiturates; that said, this is the most unrelentingly and concentratedly despair-laden project I've heard in years, possibly ever, making Pink Floyd, Nick Cave, and a slew of gloom-filled metal albums feel like bubblegum rock in comparison. Ponderous soundscapes, somber rhythmic movements, and Esfandiari's mournful voice coalesce to forge a tragically exquisite and uber-romantic manifesto.
