Has it been nearly half a year since we got any new music from Londoners Kero Kero Bonito? Yeah, it has. That was the weird, wayward ‘Chicken.’ But now they’re back with the satisfyingly bizarre and unabashedly fun ‘Lipslap.’ And if you’ve never heard a song by possibly one of the world’s most oddball pop trios, then prepare to have everything they’ve got thrown at you in one fell swoop.
‘Lipslap’ really does contain everything the threesome are good at: stupid noises, schoolyard taunts, a good dash of playfulness and a superficiality that slowly gets wiped away the more you listen to it. Yeah, it’s kind of silly and yeah, it takes a bit of getting used to (as with all of Kero Kero Bonito’s deliciously weird tracks) but it’s also a rousing return to form and one that will get stuck in your head, whether you want it to or not.
Listen to ‘Lipslap’ below.
