It’s been a little while since we’ve brought you anything new to enjoy by Jett Kwong, so I’m delighted to let you all know about the new single ‘Tokyo Bath‘! There is something classic, nostalgic and soothing about this song. However, with Jett’s creativity and breathtaking vocals it’s easy to fall in love with ‘Tokyo Bath‘. Here’s what Jett had to say about the song and video:
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.
That all pulled together nicely in the music video. You can always count on Jett to have a video treatment that so perfectly and creativity brings each song to life.
