Listen To THE BEDROOM WITCH hauntingly nuanced and beautiful new album “DIASPORA” out this Tuesday 10/15 on Oakland’s Psychic Eye. Full stream and preorder link below.
We’re proud to bring you the full album stream of Diaspora from LA recording and multimedia artist Sepehr Mashiahof‘s BEDROOM WITCH project, coming out on Psychic Eye this Tuesday, October 15th. Diaspora elegantly blends, lush, haunting synths, big ethereal swells and intricate percussion all coalesced through Mashiahof’s beautifully haunting and complex vocal delivery. Diaspora invites the listener on a foggy, dimly lit path through orchestral-like passages of a journey to an unknown land. Warm, mid-tempo plucking synth arpeggios create a driving yet ethereal background for the artist’s voice to shine through a distant dream haze. Channeling sonic references from Kate Bush to Alice Coltrane and Iranian folk music, The Bedroom Witch creates a sonic conceptual journey into another world.
In the melancholy of the new album’s narrative, each song weaves together messages from ultra-dimensional entities that describe
a way to overcome the core struggle in the first generation immigrants’ experience—alienation in a new world. Recorded and mixed by Mashiahof and released by Psychic Eye Records, Diaspora investigates the Bedroom Witch’s origin story as an Iranian-American Trans Woman.
“I kept seeing visions of women in veils obscured by cool lights hovering over me to a point where it really started to click that there was this other part of myself that I had abandoned through the diaspora. So, I wanted to tell an epic-style story that spoke to the immigrant experience.” – The Bedroom Witch
