Kero Kero Bonito – “Sick Beat”
Kero Kero Bonito are a new London trio, and their whole aesthetic mixes polyglot hip-hop — vocalist Sarah raps in Japanese and English — with sunnily maximalist dance music and sugary pop, like a Tumblr-era Cibo Matto. The group’s Intro Bonito mixtape is coming later this month, and their single “Sick Beat” is a giddy, hyperreal sunburst, the sort of thing that will hopefully make for an eye-boggling music video sooner or later. Listen to the track below.
Intro Bonito is due 8/25 on Double Denim.
