About Japanese Breakfast
Japanese Breakfast is an alternative pop band centered around Korean-American musician Michelle Zauner. Michelle wrote Japanese Breakfast's debut album in the weeks following her mother's death from cancer, thinking she would stop making music altogether after that. However, that wasn't the case. When Psychopomp was released in 2016 to great acclaim, she was forced to confront her grief. Zauner found herself reliving traumatic memories several times a day in interviews, trying to remain calm while talking about the most painful experience of her life. Her second album, Soft Sounds From Another Planet, is a transformation of grief, a reflection that turns to the cosmos in search of healing.
