What others are saying about Miserable:
“…a crashing epic that exposes the beauty in widescreen destruction. “- Spin
“Kristina Esfandiari has impressed us with her powerful, ethereal voice and haunting melodies.”- Filter
“…big metallic shoegaze and ending with the reverbed screams that helped make Deafheaven such a memorable name in heavy music this past year. …”- Brooklynvegan
“Kristina Esfandiari used to sing for Bay Area shoegaze greats Whirr, but she separated from that band to forge her own path as Miserable. “Bell Jar,” a preview from Miserable’s Halloween Dream 7-inch, is far more harrowing than anything Whirr kicked out. It starts out a bit like Deftones at their most lugubrious, all celestial moans and molasses strums, but it steadily builds into to a frightening beast of a song with tumultuous low end that will make you wonder if the earth has opened up beneath you and you’re falling into hell. You’ll seriously be shocked that Esfandiari covers that much sonic territory in just 2:14.”- Stereogum
“ The funereal sway song lunges forward into the big abyss of drums and Deafheaven approved chaotic histrionics.”- Impose Magazine
