Korean-American artist Japanese Breakfast has shared the music video of her new single, ‘Savage Good Boy’, starring Michael Imperioli of The Sopranos.

Japanese Breakfast, the musical project by Korean-American musician Michelle Zauner, has shared her new music video for ‘Savage Good Boy’.

The MV features American actor Michael Imperioli, who is best known for the role of Christopher Moltisanti in the hit TV series The Sopranos.

Michelle comments,

“‘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.”

Additionally, she has also expanded with new dates for the summer and fall tours, which will begin in New Jersey’s Asbury Park on July 28, 2021.
