After realising "Garden Song" track, singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers announces her sophome album, "Punisher", due June 19th through Dead Oceans.
To celebrate the new material, the artist shares single "Kyoto", an inspiring portrait-of-a-tour-day-off-in-Japan indie rock with wind instruments.
The video, directed by Nina Ljeti, shows Bridges and her band mates in front of a green screen, used to project special effects in reference to places and japanese culture. Originally, the video was going to be filmed in Japan last month, but the trip was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Punisher" was written and recorded between 2018-2019, with producers Tony Berg and Ethan Gruska, the same team of debut "Stranger in the Alps", as well as band mates Marshall Vore (drums), Harrison Whitford (guitar), Emily Restas (bass) and Nick White (piano). "Punisher" features contributions of names like Conor Oberst, Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, Christian Lee Hutson, Nick Zinner, Blake Mills and Nathaniel Walcott of Bright Eyes, that plays trumpets in "Kyoto" and "I Know the End".
