Kristina Esfandiari continues to blaze forth as one of alternative music’s most prolific forces— a journey that only grows fiercer with the release of her double-EP Loverboy / Dog Days todayvia Sargent House. Released under the moniker Miserable, Esfandiari leans on the pillars of shoegaze, alternapop, and grunge to conjure a spectral haze of mood and melody. Loverboy / Dog Days is streaming everywhere today (listen now on Bandcamp or Spotify).
In her work as the vocalist for King Woman, Kristina Esfandiari takes on a powerful, defiant stance against a backdrop of nocturnal doom rock. But in her ever-evolving solo endeavor Miserable, she removes the armor and reveals her vulnerabilities. The polarizing scope of Esfandiari’s work under the Miserable moniker is aptly demonstrated on two EPs forthcoming from Sargent House: the brand new Loverboy EP and a reissue of the highly sought after Dog Days EP (out together on October 26th).
