What’s not to love about cottagecore? The charming simplicity of forests, cozy outfits, and fresh food from the garden has certainly captured our hearts. That’s why we were super excited to hear that Japanese Breakfast had collaborated with The Sims on a “moo”-sic video in Simlish for their song ‘Be Sweet.’ The video’s visuals are inspired by The Sims 4 Cottage Living expansion pack released on July 22. ‘Be Sweet’ is a track from the band’s latest album, Jubilee, which came out on June 4.
The “moo”-sic video is as sweet as can be. In a sunlit field, frontwoman Michelle Zauner sways to the tune’s driving bass groove while singing into a retro mic. However, as much as we love her straw hat, blue gingham dress, and brown boots, the real stars of the video are the cows she serenades. Eager to find the source of those soft Simlish sounds, they cross bridges and fields to join Michelle (and munch on the grass by her feet). The cottagecore aesthetic is fun and whimsical, and it definitely makes us want to move to the countryside.
What’s Next for Japanese Breakfast?
If you want more from Japanese Breakfast, then you’re in luck. The band is going to provide the score and soundtrack for Sable, an open-world exploration video game coming this fall via Shedworks and Raw Fury. In addition, there will soon be a film adaptation of Michelle’s memoir, Crying in H Mart.
Japanese Breakfast will also be on tour this summer and fall in cities all across North America. Be sure to click here to learn more about tour dates and tickets.
