We have written about Melbourne artist Nat Vazer before—she's back with a new single. "Addicted to Misery" adds a more emotional and introspective element to her music: whereas her previous single had more of a tumbling, straight-ahead rock energy, this enticing preview from her upcoming second full length release—set for later this year—explores the fallout from a low mental state. This still buttery and slightly futuristic combination of hushed vocal tones and sparkling electric guitar finds Nat coaxing another personal narrative from a rich landscape of self-effacing lyricism.

"Addicted to Misery" [is] a conversational journey ... about feeling powerless to help the one you love and the sense of spiraling through that feeling. - Nat Vazer

Nat Vazer has made a name for herself at the intersection of indie rock and bedroom pop in her native Australia, weaving a heady sort of poetic confessionalism into the raw inputs of drums, guitar, and self-inspection. This authentic and hard-hitting talent for exploring the human condition through the medium of music puts Nat on par with the likes of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus—maybe give her a guest spot on the next boygenius record?

We look forward to exploring the gifts of her as-yet untitled, second full length release when it comes out later this year.
