The track is taken from the Lili Trifilio-led band’s forthcoming new album ‘Emotional Creature’, which is set for release on July 22 via Mom+Pop Music.
Speaking about ‘Karaoke’, Beach Bunny said: “‘Karaoke’ is a song about having a crush – it’s about infatuation, fleeting feelings, and the bittersweet nature of uncertainty. It’s about learning pieces of who someone is and liking them before even knowing the whole story.”
The Eliza Chance-directed video for ‘Karaoke’ has gone live this afternoon (May 4), starring Odenkirk as a captain of a spaceship.
The clip is the first in an “adventure visual series” of Star Wars-meets-Star Trek-inspired videos from Beach Bunny, according to a press release.
