Kero Kero Bonito released their second full studio album, “Time n’ Place,” earlier this month. Much to the surprise of fans and critics alike, the unannounced album acts as a resounding return for the London based trio, giving suburban nostalgia a universal appeal after their 2016 synth-heavy debut, Bonito Generation. Time n’ Place calls back to lead singer Sarah Midori Perry’s adolescence, living in suburban UK yearning for the Japanese island of Hokkaido where she had lived with her family until she was 13.
Don’t be fooled, this is not your parent’s Kero Kero Bonito. The band is growing deeper into their roots in indie rock, adopting gritty guitars and screaming symbols with more analog arrangements of their songs. The expanded sound has amplified their live performances, as they have been selling out theaters across the country since “Time n’ Place” was released, including their sold out show with Frankie Cosmos at The Regent on November 2nd.
They recently added a second co-headlining show w/ Frankie Cosmos, on November 4th at The Regent Theater.
