Japanese Breakfast | still from video

The debut LP from Michelle Zauner’s band Japanese Breakfast is creativity fueled by grief. While the songs range from poppy to heartrending, they’re to some degree informed by the passing of Zauner’s mother.

In Psychopomp‘s music video side, Zauner has approached the project with a more playful visual spirit (check out “In Heaven”), though the latest sort of splits the difference.

The mid-album rocker “Everybody Wants To Love You” has a new video co-directed by Michelle Zauner and collaborator Adam Kolodny where Zauner wanders Fishtown wearing a hanbok, a traditional Korean dress. We see her partying at th El Bar, playing pool, taking an electric guitar solo on the hood of a big rig truck and getting gas on Aramingo Ave. But her mother is ever present: that’s the dress she wore to her wedding.

Check out the video below, and pursue Japanese Breakfast’s fall string of shows; including a run with Porches and a headlining gig at Everybody Hits on October 7th. Tickets and more information on the latter can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
