TOTEP marks a pivot in Kero Kero Bonito's sound, all but abandoning their sunny, pop-oriented sound for a decidedly grungier, guitar-heavy style, full of crunching distortion and glitched out noise (Exclaim!)."

Reviews

"Upon first listen, TOTEP seemingly follows that delightfully dark trajectory, without abandoning KKB's commitment to fun."

FADER

"Opener “The One True Path” flirts with dark disco funk, while “You Know How It Is” borrows from vintage indie-pop jangle and “Cinema” tests out a smooth, downbeat version of the plasticine Bonito sound."

SPIN

"The new songs cycle through grunge-y, power-poppy, and dreamy, and they’re all great and demonstrate the versatility of KKB’s sound."
