Jett Kwong just released her new single Tokyo Bath and it’s so good. I like the haunting, ethereal vocals. Besides, the cinematic elements are impressive. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the solid hooks and delicate synthesizers.
Tokyo Bath is paired with a fantastic music video, directed by Corey Kupfer. The visuals are on point.
On the single and clip, Kwong says: ”I wrote this over two trips to Japan. The initial idea came from lavender bath water my first time in Tokyo. The second time around I traveled to an onsen in the mountains, and was soaking in this beautiful outdoor pool in the mist, hoping to feel exalted or something.. of course I didn’t, and actually felt kind of miserable.. but that in and of itself was sort of the transcendent moment! This is all coupled with a vision of a Hollywood party (specifically one in Laurel Canyon that Father John Misty might host…), and feeling excluded, laughing at the ridiculousness of it all… yet also feeling bad about NOT being included and wishing to have a piece of the pie. For the video we focused sex/racial tensions.”
Kwong always makes good music, she’s so talented. Tokyo Bath needs all the attention. Start streaming it as soon as possible!
