About Kero Kero Bonito:
We’re KKB. We make music for the whole world.
In January 2013, Sarah saw an advert for a rapper on an internet bulletin board. She applied and South London inter-school music friends Gus and Jamie agreed she was the best. We made a mixtape that Double Denim liked so much they had to release it again and then we toured round the globe.
Sarah’s mum comes from Japan and her dad comes from England, so she treats her parent languages as one. Gus and Jamie program MIDI modules for fun and study international pop charts weekly. We picked the name just because it has a nice ring to it.
We have some pretty good songs like “Flamingo” (body-positive cartoon flute R&B) and “Sick Beat” (gamer girl power rap bass). Global corporations like Adidas and Topshop recognise the stylish competitive edge Kero Kero Bonito bring to classic brands. We played at an old folks’ home once.
Now we’ve finished our debut album, and it’s turned out just how we wanted.
