Listening to Kero Kero Bonito is like being trapped inside a bright, colorful arcade machine where every facet of sound and emotion is turned up to the nth degree. Based in London, the trio—whose sound is deeply rooted in J-pop and video-game music—is led by Sarah Midori Perry, who sings and raps in both Japanese and English, with multi-instrumentalists/producers Gus Lobban and Jamie Bulled bringing the sounds and beats. Their interest in loud eight-bit sounds makes the act of listening to their music feel deeply rewarding, like you’ve just leveled up in a video game.
