The side project of Little Big League leader Michelle Zauner known as Japanese Breakfast stopped at the Dada club in Dallas, TX to deliver a radiant performance. The band who was sort of put on the map with the release of their first album Psychopomp back in 2016 under Yello K records- played various songs from both their full length releases. Their sound is interesting, kind of something that has not been done before- definitely has a lo-fi feel to it. The name of the band, according to Zauner is a juxtaposition of Asian exoticism and American culture. Despite the name, Zauner is not of Japanese descent, but Korean descent. The name is not the only thing that is unique about this band. Their instrumentals come off as dark and heavy handed, which makes them interesting- they leave this sensation of urgency, while also being a bit up-beat. The band played songs from their first album including “In Heaven”, and “The Woman That Loves You”. They played crowd favorites like “Jane Cum” and “Everybody Wants to Love You.” They also played a few tunes from their latest release entitled Soft Sounds From Another Planet– which is a more modern experimental pop album. Overall their performance was intriguing and mysterious. They are definitely a band worth checking out when they stop in or near your city.
