New Japancakes (Feat. Orenda Fink) Video – “Behind The Mountains (Stereogum Premiere)

We last saw Orenda Fink in the Lynchian, dreamily menacing video for “Permanent Scar,” the lead track from the self-titled debut by O+S, her project with Scalpelist (aka Cedric LeMoyne of Remy Zero). Taking part in another collaboration, “Behind The Mountains” features her guest vocal turn with longstanding Athens instrumentalists Japancakes. It comes complete with Japancakes first ever video, an ethereal trek into some glittery, ribboned fairy realm created by director Ryan Berg. Visually Orenda’s joined by Whitney Able, Kelly Boehmer, Shannon Malone, Elizabeth Hendrix, Laura Slade, and Kinsey Packard, but she’s the only one actually singing.

There are going to be three versions of “Behind The Mountains.” The other vocal version features lyrics and a performance in Mandarin by Moon (Miss Stocking). Then, of course, because it’s Japancakes, we’ll get something instrumental, too. You’ll be able to find the songs packaged with the video on iTune on 7/28.
