An overly dramatic de-saturated photo of a man kneading bread. He is in a darkened kitchen staring blankly at the table. His dead-behind-the-eyes stare gives us a glimpse into the existentialism that people are trying to avoid by taking up pandemic hobbies like baking. Baking is fun. In the top left corner the text reads “Baking Bread”
Baking bread is a music video about just that: baking bread. It chronicles everybody’s recent obsession with baking bread during the pandemic and the real… dark… crippling… all-consuming reason they’re doing it. Existential crisis over a smooooooth chill beat anyone? YES PLEASE.
