Japanese Breakfast released their first album, Psychopomp, in 2016 一 the album is consistently ranked among the best shoegaze albums of the 2010s. Their most recent album, Jubilee, was released in June 2021. Michelle Zauner, the front-woman of the band, has described the album as being about ‘joy’, as opposed to their previous two albums which focused heavily on themes of loss and grief. Jubilee was released to widespread critical acclaim and peaked at number seven on Billboard’s alternative chart.
Luna Li, the opener for the first three NYC shows, is a Toronto based multi-instrumentalist and self described “music making moon fairy,” whose dreamy pop music has garnered over 6 million Spotify streams.
Charly Bliss, the opener for the Sunday, October 17th show, is a power pop group from Brooklyn whose sound has been compared to 90s alt-rock bands like Weezer and Veruca Salt.
