Japanese Breakfast has shared the music video for “Savage Good Boy”, which is a song taken from Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner upcoming new album, Jubilee, out on June 4th via Dead Oceans. Michelle Zauner stars in the self-directed video with Michael Imperioli of The Sopranos fame.
Zauner described the song and its video in a statement: “‘Savage Good Boy came from a headline I read about billionaires buying bunkers. I was interested in examining that specific type of villainy, and I found myself adopting the perspective of a rich man coaxing a young woman to come live with him underground, attempting to rationalize his almost impossible share of greed and miserliness. I knew I wanted the music video to be a pretty literal interpretation of that idea. I wanted to juxta’pose images of this post-apocalyptic, industrial bunker with the lightness and extravagance of rococo fashion and set design. Aiming for that balance, my cinematographer, Adam Kolodny, and I were really inspired by Chan Wook Park’s The Handmaiden, Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon and Sally Potter’s Orlando.”
