video premiere: Japan, Man – Stop Staring

We were immediately charmed about a month back after encountering “Stop Staring“, the irresistible and undeniably promising debut single from Beirut’s Laeticia Acra, aka Japan, Man. It’s a dreamy, youthful jam that reminds us a bit of Clairo’s endearing bedroom pop (Acra is a big fan), with an infectious, Men I Trust-esque soft funk vibe and a sparkling chorus that’s impossible to shake after one listen. It is also notable and perhaps worth mentioning — and just a little mind-blowing given how great this song is — that Acra is only 14 years old. We’re honored to premiere the very first Japan, Man video, a sweet and playful visual accompaniment befitting a song that has quickly become one of our favorite things this year, starring and directed by Acra herself. Watch below, and look out for more from Japan, Man coming in the near future:
