Let This New Miserable Song Make You Miserable

Or uplifted, depending on your mood.

You know what a Rorschach test is, right? It's when they show you a bunch of inkblots that look an awful lot like your parents having sex? Well, some people interpret those with warm feelings and others see them as dark and gloomy. It's sort of the point of the thing. Like a Rorschach test, Miserable's minimal yet epic approach to music will intensify your inner psyche. If you're feeling good about life right now, you'll probably feel uplifted and empowered by her crescendoing slow drumming that seems to build forever. But if you're in a dark place at the moment, you'll likely be floored by the sadness behind her shoegazey, melancholic singing.

Miserable is the solo project from Kristina Esfandiari, formerly of Whirr. Check out a song from her new EP below which you get a free download of if you pre-order it here via The Native Sound.
