Japanese Breakfast share spooky, amusing new video for “Road Head”: Watch

on July 06, 2017, 12:20pm

 

Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner certainly seems to be a genre fan. After releasing a deliciously sci-fi video for “Machinist”, the songwriter is debuting another new video in advance of the band’s new album, Soft Sounds from Another Planet, this one more indebted to horror (and a touch of domestic thriller).

The song, “Road Head”, is infectiously rhythmic and weirdly sexy, while the video casts its subjects—Zauner and a lover consisting of a black cloak, alien hands, and a goat skull—in the sickly fluorescent glow of ’70s exploitation. Watch it above.

“For this one we wanted to focus on staging and an exaggerated color palette,” Zauner, who also directed the video, said in a statement. “We were inspired by Fallen Angels and Twin Peaks.”

Japanese Breakfast has also announced a headlining tour of North America and Europe to complement their dates supporting Slowdive, (Sandy) Alex G, and Tegan and Sara. They’ll be bringing along the punk rockers in Mannequin Pussy and psych-folk outfit Spirit of the Beehive. See the band’s full tour schedule below.

Soft Sounds from Another Planet is out July 14th, but you can read our review of it right now.
