Japanese Breakfast

Event Details

The fact that Japanese Breakfast is a Korean-American one-woman band is indicative of a willingness to defy expectations, and that’s just what Michelle Zauner (formerly of Little Big League) has been doing.

Japanese Breakfast’s 2016 debut, Psychopomp, was first-rate dream pop, but by next year’s Soft Sounds from Outer Space Zauner came up with what sounds like an unlikely middle ground between synthpop and shoegaze, and this summer she released a low-key cover of Tears for Fears’ “Head Over Heels” that makes you wonder how else she might transform other people’s songs. We’d be perfectly happy with her continuing to make albums like Soft Sounds, though!
