(Photo by Bailey Kobelin and and Gabriel Gamboa) Out now is the new video for the Los Angeles-based Iranian-American dark synth artist The Bedroom Witch. “My Only” is taken from the “A Place of Hurt” album scheduled for 04 November 2022 via Psychic Eye and Ratskin Records. The Bedroom Witch is the dark synth-pop project of performance artist Sepehr Mashiahof and in “My Only” she mixes synthesizer, voice, and drum sounds.
Musically it certainly dwells in the eighties synthpop with a touch of The Cure.
Mashiahof says: “‘My Only’ is a song about coping mechanisms, like getting through difficult feelings through substance dependencies. It’s about those most honest moments of recognition of our own self-sabotaging behavior. We all go through it, but how do we get out of it? For me, it meant coming to terms with the fact that I am in this body, for this lifetime. Somewhere, there’s power in realizing you’re stuck with yourself.”
Here’s the video.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
