Jasmine Golestaneh of N.Y.C. duo Tempers has embarked on a solo project (self-described as "neuro-mantic shadow wave terror folk"), the first product of which is "Bad Times." The song is a dark brooding on that confusing, frustrating yearning for an old love that didn't treat your heart all that well. The music video for "Bad Times" features Golestaneh's face, and only her face, in a Warhol-influenced k-hole of self-reflection.
“This song is about the contradiction of feeling nostalgic for a bad relationship—the confusion of memory, love and pain," Golestaneh told The FADER in an email. "The video was directed by Katja Eichinger, and inspired by time we spent together with Andy Warhol muse Baby Jane Holzer. It’s meant to live in the intimate hypnotic world of a Warhol screen test.” When you're contemplating your own emotions and trying to figure out what's going on in your brain, who else's face do you stare at in search of connection but your own? Watch "Bad Times" above.
