Japanese Breakfast released the excellent indie-pop album Soft Sounds From Another Planet this summer, and after dropping videos for the album tracks “Machinist” and “Road Head,” they’ve got a new one for the shimmering “The Body Is A Blade.” Band mastermind Michelle Zauner, who’s emerged as a truly gifted music-video auteur, directed the video. In it, she hacks her way across a field, swims in a lake, and hangs out on the Asbury Park boardwalk in the middle of a rainstorm. In between, we see old photos of Zauner’s parents and of Zauner as a baby, many of them shot in the same places where we see grown-up Zauner now. It’s a charming video, and you can watch it below.
Soft Sounds From Another Planet is out now on Dead Oceans.
