it’s rarely so easy to fall so head over heels in love with an album so quickly but the breathless ease that michelle zauna (aka Japanese breakfast) pumps life, narrative and longing into shoegaze influenced indie pop hooks you instantly.

musically she takes inspiration most notably from lush, throwing muses and the pixies, but rather than sounding like a tired homage her unique dramatic storytelling (in part dealing with the passing of her mother to cancer) and an ear for a great hook turn ‘psychopomp’ into a disarmingly honest, emotional and modern album. “at once cosmically huge and acutely personal, Zauner captures grief for the perversely intimate yet overwhelming pain it is.” – 7.9, pitchfork
