Kero Kero Bonito released their debut album Bonito Generation back in 2016, but it looks like they might be on the verge of a follow-up soon. The British electronic pop group just dropped a new single titled “Only Acting,” and it’s a step in a slightly new direction for them.
Bonito Generation was a bright little album full of J-pop and dance-infused tunes that blasted forward with hooks and positivity. The new single “Only Acting” appears to be in a similar vein at first. The track’s first half is a peppy electro-pop track, but it eventually explodes into a pop-punk guitar solo jam. It’s invigorating to hear the band twisting their sound into a new place, but things fairly quickly escalate into a darker, creepier place. To see what that means, watch the video right down below.
Kero Kero Bonito have not officially announced any news regarding a new album yet, but one can assume it’s coming. In the meantime stream Bonito Generation right here.
