We've heard two singles from Japanese Breakfast's anticipated third album, Jubilee (pre-order it here), so far, and here's the third, "Savage Good Boy." It's a propulsive track with blips of cartoonishly altered vocals, and its accompanying video, which Michelle Zauner directed, is part of the narrative established in the videos for "Be Sweet" and "Posing in Bondage."
Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) stars in the "Savage Good Boy" video, and about it, Zauner says, "'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 juxtapose 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."
