Japanese Breakfast has released a video for ‘Boyish,’ one of the highlights from her awesome 2017 album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet. Watch it below:
Michelle Zauner, who also directed the video, says “The video for Boyish was always sort of our magnum opus for Soft Sounds. I think it took Adam Kolodny and I working on so many videos together to prepare for the enormity of a school dance–lighting and decorating such a large space, casting and dressing so many extras. The song is about insecurity, particularly what it’s like to love someone who isn’t physically attracted to you. It’s an old song, the meaning of which has transformed for me over time, but it has always been about a tension and rejection perfectly encompassed by a school dance. I did not attend my own senior prom, so it was the perfect opportunity to bring my own vision of a gorgeous, space dance to life.”
Additionally, Japanese Breakfast expanded her 2018 US tour to include support dates with Belle & Sebastian, stops at Coachella, Bonnaroo and Sasquatch, and new headlining dates through the summer that includes shows with LVL UP, Radiator Hospital and Snail Mail.
