Why Kero Kero Bonito’s ‘Intro Bonito’ is Still Top Notch

Kero Kero Bonito is a three part act from London, England.

They have a singer that raps in both Japanese and English in all of their tracks. Sarah Perry is the vocalist, and has Gus and Jaime as her producers.

The group’s introductory album is titled “Intro Bonito,” and was released in 2014. The album has 15 tracks on it, with relatively short songs. The album comes out to just over 35 minutes in length. The introductory track is titled “Bonito Into.” It’s a 50 second track which says hello in both Japanese and English.

The following track is titled “Intro Bonito,” and is longer than the first song on the album. This song is a strong start, as it gives off great beats that give you an idea of what KKB is all about.

After this, we break into arguably one of KKB’s greatest hits, “Sick Beat.” This song has great production and in each play something new can be heard. With a chorus that keeps you interested with wordplay, the song is a standout track.

All in all, I highly recommend this album if you are looking for a pop band with a great vocalist and interesting lyrics combined with beats that keep you coming back. The top three tracks off of this album for me are “Sick Beat,” “My Party” and “Homework.” Each of them showcases a quintessential part of the KKB experience, and highlights her rapping, beats and singing in a fun lighthearted way. If I were to rate this album, I would have to give it an eight out of ten. This is a fun album that would be a great soundtrack exploring, or whenever you have the time.
