Indie pop queens Eskimeaux and Japanese Breakfast kick off joint solo tour in December
So far their are only five announced tour dates that will begin on December 14th and end on the 18th with a show on the 15th in Philly in the side chapel of the First Unitarian Church.
Philly just can’t get enough of Japanese Breakfast. The project of singer / guitarist / songwriter Michelle Zauner released its first full length album Psychopomp via Yellow K Records back in April. In the time since, the band toured with Mitski and hit us with video after video — all of which received glowing reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone and NPR.
Japanese Breakfast’s tourmate Eskimeaux also has a penchant for low-key melancholic pop. The project of Gabrielle Smith most recently released Year of the Rabbit, an LP carried by soaring melodies and raw emotion. To get a better feel for her music, check out the video for “Broken Neck” from her 2015 album O.K. Lyrics like “You were breaking your neck trying to keep your head up / I was breaking my neck just to stick it out for you” epitomize the Smith’s multi-layered and introspective approach to Eskimeaux.
