Kero Kero Bonito announce new album Bonito Generation, share new track, make all the bubblegum go POP POP POP!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m constantly getting all my UK pop bands confused! Ugh… they just all run together for me, know what I mean? So, I’m, like, NOT TOTALLY SURE, but I think either Radiohead or London-based trio Kero Kero Bonito have a new album coming out October 21 via Double Denim.

The name of the album is Bonito Generation, which sounds like a pretty typical Jonny Greenwood idea. And BOTH bands tend to write “songs” that are “electronic influenced,” so this lead-single from the album called “Graduation” is no help either!

Oh well. WHOEVER wrote it, it consists of a pretty cool mix of 8-bit electro rock and totes-in-my-face dancehall jammage, with some high, soprano vocals (again, NO HELP!) about school being lame sung in both English and Japanese draped over the top. Check it out for yourself down below and pre-order the album on iTunes. Oh yeah, and whoever wrote it is also touring North America this fall, too. Sigh… I guess I’ll just hedge my Brit-pop bets and wear Beatles gear to all these shows!
