Kero Kero Bonito



Kero Kero Bonito (KKB) is a British band from London, England. The band consists of vocalist Sarah Midori Perry, producer Gus Lobban, and producer Jamie Bulled. Their name's meaning is intentionally ambiguous, with one derivation from the Japanese onomatopoeic words for frog croaks and a type of fish.[1] Other meanings include the Brazilian Quero-quero bird, and the Portuguese translation of "I want, I want, Beautiful".[2]

The band's music is influenced by J-pop, dancehall, and video game music.[3] They write many of their songs using a Casio SA-45 mini-keyboard.[4] Perry raps in both Japanese and English.[3]
