Japanese Breakfast releases a video for "Everybody Wants To Love You"
Phto bu Phobymo

Japanese Breakfast has released a music video for “Everybody Wants To Love You.” The video is co-directed by Michelle Zauner and frequent collaborator Adam Kolodny and is the third installment of their trilogy. In the video, styled by Celeste Welch, Zauner is wearing a hanbok, a traditional Korean dress, that her mother wore to her wedding. Japanese Breakfast’s debut album, Psychopomp, is out now via Yellow K Records in North America and via Dead Oceans in the rest of the world. Japanese Breakfast is currently on tour with Porches and has announced a European fall tour. All dates below.

A side project from her work as front woman of Philadelphia indie punk band Little Big League, Michelle Zauner released a tape in June 2013 under the solo moniker Japanese Breakfast. The tape was titled June and boasted thirty tracks written and recorded every day of the month. A stark deviation from Little Big League’s guitar- based indie rock, it showcased Zauner’s dark lyrics, unique vocals and inherent knack for pop melody.

Two bedroom pop cassettes later, Japanese Breakfast returned with her first full-fledged LP and vinyl release, Psychopomp. The album explores Zauner’s experimental interests and hosts a wide range of sound: jarring anime samples, minimalist ballads, rhythms and synths reminiscent of Tango in the Night-era Fleetwood Mac paired with the moody intimacy of Mount Eerie. After the foundation of the album was built, Zauner enlisted Ned Eisenberg to coproduce and embellish the record. Eisenberg helped with the mixing and production of the album.
