KERO KERO BONITO Release Surprise EP Today - 'Civilisation I' Out NOW!

KERO KERO BONITO 
ANNOUNCE NEW CIVILISATION I EP 
OUT TODAY


NORTH AMERICAN FALL TOUR STARTS THIS WEEK
(Photo Credit: Mia Sakai )

Kero Kero Bonito are back. After the release of Time ‘n’ Place last year, the London-based bilingual art-pop band have a new EP titled Civilisation I which is available today everywhere. The songs are the band’s most ambitious work to date and were written, produced and recorded in the bedroom of KKB’s Gus Lobban. The EP explores themes from religion to the apocalypse as well as immediate threats like social division and climate change. Lobban explains "If Time 'n' Place was about mixing up adolescent nostalgia, contemporary millennial malaise and the daunting near future, Civilisation I blows up that timeline to cover the ancient past of primitive man (myths, cave art and tribalism), the large-scale situation facing humanity in 2019 and the distant future, when humans have been wiped from the face of Earth."

Earlier this month they hinted at new music with the release of the epic song and video for “When The Fires Come.” Check out the song and video HERE

Kero Kero Bonito will be returning to the US next month for a major North American tour. All dates are listed below.

Praise for Kero Kero Bonito:

"The trio adds indie rock and noise music to their electropop bread-and-butter, venturing into darker thematic territory." - The FADER

“On their sophomore album, the London trio animate songs about the complexity of memory and the promise of dreams with playful production choices” - Pitchfork

"The Open Road' is as giddy and gleeful as every KKB song, but like a lot of them, it’s also got a tinge of the bittersweet to it." - Stereogum

"...sticky sweet vocals...Even with [‘The Open Road’s’] vulnerable and sometimes wistful lyrics, the latest from KKB ends on a triumphant note. With shimmering, happy-go-lucky instrumentation throughout, the final stanza turns back to family and the personal desire to keep exploring."
Consequence of Sound

"There’s clarity, fun, and exhilarating experimentation within [Time ‘n’ Place]." - Noisey

"...existential themes and surrealistic textures..." - Bandcamp

"...wildly creatively sensibilities and melodic smarts." - Brooklyn Vegan

“On Time ‘N’ Place, Perry embraces a youthful mindset, pairing lyrics that harken back to childhood with glittering, chaotic synths." - Uproxx (20 Must-Hear Pop Albums of 2018)

IGGY POP “LOVES MISSING” VIDEO PREMIERE LIVE NOW

IGGY POP

“LOVES MISSING” VIDEO PREMIERE LIVE NOW

FREE OUT NOW ON LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS


On the sparse, measured ‘Loves Missing,’ he sings, ‘Loves screaming, loves missing,’ and you can feel his pain” Rolling Stone

Following his electrifying performance of “James Bond” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and fascinating conversation with Jim Jarmusch at 92Y, Iggy Pop has now unveiled the video for “Loves Missing” from his new album Free, viewable now at: https://found.ee/LovesMissingVid
Directed by Simon Taylor, the clip for “Loves Missing” was shot on location at Sweat Records in Miami with a special appearance by Ale Campos from Las Nubes, Miami. Like the song itself, the “Loves Missing” video reveals another dimension of what it means to be Free, putting a visual face to raw emotions laid bare via close-ups of Iggy intoning, “She’s thinking about something we all need/All need/Clock’s ticking, not giving her room to breathe/To breathe/Loves screaming/Loves missing/Loves screaming, so quietly and in pain/Loves absent, it’s failing her once again, again.”
Free was released September 6 by Loma Vista Recordings. Featuring collaborators Leron Thomas (trumpet/keys/songwriting) and Noveller (guitar/vocals), the album holds a singular place in Iggy’s canon—and continues to generate appropriately unique praise: The New York Times called the title track “atmospheric and elusive” and more recently praised “Sonali” as “a rushing, fluttering, quasi-waltz that hurries toward an undisclosed destination, whimsical but driven.”Rolling Stone lauded the album’s “certain restrained swagger. The guitars simmer, never boil. The bass swells, and the keyboards shimmer behind him. And all the while, Pop flexes his baritone, expressing himself more clearly than perhaps ever before.” And the Washington Post noted “Iggy haunts these new songs like a dignified spirit — which might make Free an exposition on death, or transcendence, or both.”
Free is available for purchase at https://found.ee/IG_Free

CIGARETTES AFTER SEX DETAIL UPCOMING LP CRY OUT OCT 25TH VIA PARTISAN

CIGARETTES AFTER SEX DETAIL UPCOMING LP CRY  
OUT OCT 25TH VIA PARTISAN

HEAR “HEAVENLY” NOW
Photo Cred: Ebru Yildiz
Cigarettes After Sex will return with their anticipated sophomore album - Cry - on October 25th via Partisan Records. Recorded during night time sessions in a mansion on the Spanish island of Mallorca, the album is a lush, cinematic meditation on the many complex facets of love - meeting, wanting, needing, losing...sometimes all at once. Listen to album highlight “Heavenly” now.



Earlier today, “Heavenly” was featured as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on her BBC Radio 1 show, and also had a first play on Sirius XMU in the US. Frontman/guitarist Greg Gonzalez describes the song as “inspired by the overwhelming beauty I felt watching an endless sunset on a secluded beach in Latvia one summer night...”

After decamping to Mallorca the same week that their self-titled minimalist pop masterwork debut was released in 2017, Gonzalez and his bandmates - Jacob Tomsky (drums) & Randy Miller (bass) - consciously let the striking location guide the initial Cry sessions. “The sound of this record is completely tied to the location for me,” Gonzalez explains. “Ultimately, I view this record as a film. It was shot in this stunning, exotic location, and it stitches all these different characters and scenes together, but in the end is really about romance, beauty & sexuality. It’s a very personal telling of what those things mean to me.”

While the music came quickly – often improvised on the spot – it would be another two years before Gonzalez would attempt to complete the accompanying lyrics. Helped by the burgeoning love of a new relationship, the influence of films by Éric Rohmer, and the songs of Selena and Shania Twain among others, Cry blends the carnal subtlety of their debut with a warmer palette. The album was self-produced and engineered by Gonzalez, and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs).

The band will tour extensively behind Cry. They’ve confirmed a global headline tour this fall which has already begun to sell out. That run includes stops at The Wiltern (Oct 3) in LA, and Brooklyn Steel (Oct 24) + Webster Hall (Oct 23) in NYC. Full routing below, more dates to be announced soon.

Cigarettes After Sex’s self-titled debut has sold over 550k records to date (streaming equivalent), amassing over 360 million Spotify streams, 2.2 million monthly listeners, and 350 million YouTube streams. The band’s list of on-the-record fans include everyone from Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, Lana Del Rey, Françoise Hardy, Lily Allen, Busy Philipps + more. They’ve been featured in Vice Noisey, V Magazine, Interview, NPR’s Tiny Desk, and their music has appeared in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Killing Eve,’ and Ralph Lauren ads.
