“Trampoline” by Kero Kero Bonito

Don’t let the cutesy lyrics and production fool you; Kero Kero Bonito is the real deal. This British trio sound is the result of a seemingly unholy gumbo of J-Pop, video game music, hip-hop, and¬†dancehall that results in something that’s like Cibo Matto meets Carly Rae Jepsen. With their first major label debut, Kero Kero Bonito seems to have all the confidence in the world and elevate their perceived gimmickry to a fool-proof pop music ideology. “Trampoline” is a perfect example with its incredibly catchy hook, inspiring lyrics, and its use of both Japanese and English lyrics. Try to listen to this song once and not get it stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Bonito Generation is out now.
