Bnny is the Chicago-based band led by Jessica Viscius. Today, they have shared a brand new music video for the ballad “Breaking Up.”
Directed by Weird Life (Lala Lala, Raven Lenae), the black & white dreamscape encapsulates the ephemeral beauty of the song that’s primed for nighttime listening.

Continuing along the teary-eyed, moonlit path of their 2021 debut Everything, “Breaking Up” is “yet another breakup song,” Viscius jokes. “A reflection of my past and present.” Recorded and mixed by Dave Vettraino, “Breaking Up” is accompanied by a visualizer shot by Alexa Viscius on Super 8 film. Grounded by Jessica’s lulled vocals and nostalgic instrumentation courtesy of her band – twin sister Alexa, and a revolving cast of friends including Tim Makowski, Adam Schubert, Matt Pelkey, and Sarah Weddle – “Breaking Up” is Bnny’s most immediate track to date, a universal and irresistible earworm. “I’m looking at photos // remembering when,” Viscius intones in her ever-cool voice,“Breaking up and making up // and breaking up again.”

Written in sessions that spanned several years as bandleader Jess Viscius processed the death of her partner, Everything may as well be a field recording taken from the lone country of grief. Bnny’s sparse but wrenching Americana has earned her cosigns from musical peers like Cassandra Jenkins, Kate Nash, and Kevin Morby. Nest week Bnny embarks on a tour supporting fellow Midwest indie mainstays Bonny Doon with select headline shows along the way.
