Japanese Breakfast

Watch: Japanese Breakfast “Boyish” Video

Mar 05, 2018

Japanese Breakfast released its splendid album Soft Sounds from Another Planet this past summer and today shared the video for "Boyish" from that album. Check the prom themed video below and new Japanese Breakfast tour dates as well. 

Here's what frontwoman Michelle Zauner had to say about the video that she directed:

"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."
