Belle & Sebastian

Belle and Sebastian have revealed the video for their recently released single, ‘We Were Beautiful’. Directed by Blair Young from The Forest of Black and filmed throughout the band’s native Glasgow (where they also recorded and produced the track), the video presents a cinematic slice of life — and all of the pain, joy, confusion, and love that comes with it — as the city wakes up over a Saturday morning.

Always attuned to human pathos and their community, Belle and Sebastian’s artful meditation on quotidian moments is a perfect visual companion to the new song, which The Sunday Timesdescribed as “a Pet Shop Boys-like curveball that explodes into a quintessential B&S chorus”, and The Guardian called “an appealing curio” with “a pretty kick ass chorus”.

Having recently wrapped up a North American tour that included Panorama and Osheaga Festivals, appearances at the legendary Hollywood Bowl and Merriweather Post Pavilion, and international headlines after leaving their drummer at a Walmart in North Dakota, the band today announces a run of headline UK and European tour dates kicking off in February 2018 in Belgium and arriving in UK cities at the beginning of March.

Keep an eye out for more Belle and Sebastian news regarding forthcoming new music soon!

Japanese Breakfast

A side project from her work as front woman of Philadelphia indie punk band Little Big League, Michelle Zauner released a tape in June 2013 under the solo moniker Japanese Breakfast. The tape was titled June and boasted thirty tracks written and recorded every day of the month. A stark deviation from Little Big League’s guitar- based indie rock, it showcased Zauner’s dark lyrics, unique vocals and inherent knack for pop melody.


Two bedroom pop cassettes later, Japanese Breakfast returns with its first full- fledged LP and vinyl release, Psychopomp. The album explores Zauner’s experimental interests and hosts a wide range of sound: jarring anime samples, minimalist ballads, rhythms and synths reminiscent of Tango in the Night-era Fleetwood Mac paired with the moody intimacy of Mount Eerie. After the foundation of the album was built, Zauner enlisted Ned Eisenberg to coproduce and embellish the record. Eisenberg helped with the mixing and production of the album. Psychopomp revisits and revamps lo-fi tracks and adds chilling new songs to fall in love with.
