Japanese Breakfast’s debut album Psychopomp is one of the best of the year so far, and today the haunting album cut “Jane Cum” has gotten the video treatment. Michelle Zauner once again teamed up with Adam Kolodny and House Of Nod Productions, who also directed the video for “In Heaven“, for a spooky, occult-themed day in the woods. Zauner explained the concept for the video to Rookie:
After the “In Heaven” video, I knew I wanted to work with Adam again. We wanted to do a really dark, witchy video. So we both made moodboards for it, and they were just perfectly aligned. I knew that I wanted to have really dark shots, where the background was pure black, with lighting from headlights. I wanted to reference the ’90s movie The Craft. Then Adam brought in this True Detective daytime vibe. He was also the one who created the narrative with the artifacts. We went to Freehold, New Jersey, and filmed it in his parents’ backyard. We drove around in this vintage Volvo, filming with a car camera and a drone.
Psychopomp is out now via Yellow K Records, and is getting worldwide distribution via Dead Oceans. -- Stereogum
