SASAMI – “Morning Comes” Video

Last month, Artist To Watch SASAMI released her self-titled debut. The Los Angeles-based musician has released a couple good videos for this album cycle so far, for “Jealousy,” “Not The Time,” and “Free,” and today she’s putting out another one, this time for “Morning Comes.” It’s a fun one, taking the form of a YouTube cooking tutorial for kimchi, given by Sasami Ashworth’s grandmother Halmoni. It’s brightly-colored and seems like a pretty good recipe!

Here’s what Ashworth had to say about the video, which she co-directed alongside Eric Notarnicola:

‘Morning Comes’ is the first song with lyrics I ever wrote and recorded. I wrote it at the beginning of a year’s cycle of sentiments and emotional convictions. It marked a (fleeting) chapter of independence, confidence, and feeling in control. This was soon followed by many lapses in said control and emotional strength (hence every other song on the album lol). It seemed fitting to make a music video featuring the most stable and strong person I know – my grandmother (Halmoni). She is a boss ass bitch and makes truly the most epic kimchi on planet earth. Watch the video for yourself and visit her shop in LA if you really want to know the TRUTH.
