Following her X Files homage last month, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner returns with a horror-tinged visual for the slow-burn ballad “Posing in Bondage.” Zauner floats into an empty supermarket on a hoverboard, wearing a striking black outfit with winged shoulder pads and dried blood on her face, plus a scarily vacant gaze (the question of where, or who, the blood came from is tantalizingly left to the imagination).

She takes advantage of the desolate store by chugging orange juice straight from the jug in the frozen food aisle before eventually striking up an unlikely friendship with the store’s lone cashier. Images of the pair careening around in shopping carts and sharing cups of noodles offer a wry take on intimacy that’s in line with the song’s yearning for closeness. It also completely makes you want to make friends with someone who may or may not be a vampire.

“Posing in Bondage” the new song by Japanese Breakfast from the album ‘Jubilee’, out June 4th on Dead Oceans Records.
