In October, London electro-pop trio Kero Kero Bonito released their debut album Bonito Generation, which consists of 12 high-fructose, J-pop-influenced dance tracks, with equally infectious lyrics half-rapped and half-sung in both English and Japanese.
While in Toronto for a recent show, Daily VICE invited the band—vocalist Sarah Midori Perry and producers Gus Lobban and Jamie Bulled—to try their hand at making the city's latest food craze, sushi burritos. After rolling some delicious concoctions at SU&BU, we sat down with the three-piece to discuss the making of their new full-length and why they think adulthood is overrated.
"We don't ever sit down and we're like, 'Right we're going to make a fun record today,'" said Lobban. "We make songs of what we see," added Midori Perry. "This world is not just sad, and this world is not just happy, it's a mixture of things. I think our songs are a reflection of that mixture of happy and sad all together."
