Listen: Kero Kero Bonito – Lipslap

23.02.16,

Kero Kero Bonito is back with wiry new single called Lipslap.

Premiered yesterday by Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio show, the new song is the London trio's first since early 2015's Picture This and arrives following a tour of North America and Japan in late 2015.

Over intermittent squelchy synths and a glimmering beat, Sarah Bonito jumps off a springboard made of hypnotic pop-leaning melodies, delivering thinking cap bars. It briefly simmers but then, the rhythm snaps back as the infectious vibe completes its takeover, making the point: "I can't hear you 'cos this beat is taking over."

Listen to Lipslap above and revisit our interview with Kero Kero Bonito from 2014 here.
