Kishi Bashi: The Ballad of Mr. Steak

A magical dancing steak must make a fateful choice between duty and passion in the newest music video for singer-songwriter-one-man-symphony Kishi Bashi.

Mr. Steak is the first single off of Bashi's sophomore album, Lighght. You may remember his earlier work Philosophize in It! Chemicalize with It! from March, however the new album reportedly pushes well beyond his debut's endless synth loops, into a more refined pop sound with catchier hooks and less chanting.


"It's about a tragic love affair about a dancing cut of tenderloin," Kishi Bashi tells American Songwriter. "Although he wants to ultimately be eaten, his other joy in his short life is to dance." Decisions, decisions.
