This piece is a biting and soulful commentary on the horrifying ordinariness of mass shootings in America. American Breakfast uses syncopated rhythms and soaring lyrical lines to subtly show, rather than tell, the experience of casually waking up to yet another tragic headline. This is a piece that does not offer answers, but rather asks deep and profound questions about how we navigate violence in the 21st Century.
