Japanese Breakfast Unveils Music Video For ‘Savage Good Boy’ | Music News


Japanese Breakfast, the musical project of American musician Michelle Zauner, has released a new song titled “Savage Good Boy”, as well as accompanying visuals starring Sopranos star Michael Imperioli. Her musical genre is indie-rock and pop, and she has already released two studio albuma Psychopomp and Soft Sounds from Another Plane, with a third on the way.


The artist revealed that herself and her cinematographer, Adam Kolodny, were inspired by Chan Wook Park’s The Handmaiden, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon and Sally Potter’s Orlando for their new “Savage Good Boy” video. The single arrives ahead of her upcoming album Jubilee, which is due to be released on June 4 via Dead Oceans.


Zauner explains “Savage Good Boy’ came from a headline I read about billionaires buying bunkers, was interested in examining that specific type of villainy… I knew I wanted the music video to be a pretty literal interpretation of that idea. I wanted to juxtapose images of this post-apocalyptic, industrial bunker with the lightness and extravagance of rococo fashion and set design”.


The visuals provided by Japanese Breakfast are truly amazing, it’s very creative as it recreates situations that could fit in that environment in a mix of reality and fantasy, as well as the lyrics that are expressive. The way they play with big costumes, throwing money up, ironically sharing crumbs as dinner, and high-stakes game of cards, makes for interesting viewing.
