Japanese Breakfast Is "Music For Bottoms"

Lead singer Michelle Zauner says it’s “sensitive, emotional music.”

If you’re a fan of Japanese Breakfast, you may or may not be surprised to learn that the ultra-popular experimental band is “music for bottoms.”

At least that’s how a friend of lead singer Michelle Zauner put it. In an interview with Insider, Zauner shared, “A lot of times, when our tour managers have security meetings at venues, they’re always like, ‘Don’t worry. You’ll be really bored tonight. There’s nothing.’ They’re very sweet and polite.”

Zauner attributes it to the emotional nature of the American band’s lyrics, revealing, “My friend calls us ‘music for bottoms’. I mean, we just make sensitive, emotional music, so it attracts a certain type of person. I’m a very earnest person, and I think a lot of our fans are very earnest as well.”

The band is certainly coming out on top as they received a Grammy nomination this year for Best New Artist despite being active since 2013. Joking, Zauner said, “I was just delighted, and then when everyone was like, ‘She’s not a new artist,’ I was like, ‘Shut up. Everyone just be quiet. Let’s just roll with this.’ Because the opportunity to be nominated in a major category and get to actually sit in the main ceremony was such a privilege that I don’t know if I’m ever going to have again. Definitely no complaints about being recognized as a ‘new artist.’”

Whatever position you prefer, Japanese Breakfast is admittedly for everyone.
