London trio Kero Kero Bonito (Sarah, Jamie, Gus) seemed to bounce onto the scene fully-formed with their effervescent DIY mixtape, Intro Bonito, in 2014.

They’d created a technicolor world all their own-one wherein J-pop, K-pop, video games, art, club and electronic music all danced together and everyone was invited.

On this “official” debut full-length, their diverse musical influences blend as seamlessly as Sarah’s combination Anglo-Japanese lyrics.
