New Music Of The Day: Kero Kero Bonito – ‘Lipslap’

It’s weird to think that when Bromley trio Kero Kero Bonito first came out they seemed about as far wide of the mainstream as you could get. A couple of years later, and following in the wake of PC Music and Danny L Harle, they’re pretty much in the eye of the hurricane.

Much like 2015 singles ‘Picture This’ and ‘Chicken’, ‘Lipslap’ is a fine pop song first and foremost, with singer Midori Perry evoking Saint Etienne’s Sarah Cracknell in her delivery.

The band play a London show on April 14 at The Courtyard Theatre.
