Japanese Breakfast – “Road Head”

Michelle Zauner will return next week with Soft Sounds From Another Planet, her sophomore release as Japanese Breakfast. The first two singles from the album hinted at a more diverse sound with a little bit of everything, appropriately, considering the title, worlds different from her more thematic, jagged and emotional debut Psychopomp. The guitar that begins her newest teaser “Road Head” is soft and haunting at the same time, with ethereal synth effects mingling with Zauner’s piercing vocals. Her vocals are starry-eyed and hopeful, but the lyrics are tinged with desperation and disappointment, still incredibly enticing.

Soft Sounds From Another Planet will be released on July 14th.
