From looming work deadlines to the endless availability that mobile phones present, when’s the last time anyone has ever encouraged you to take a break? Enter Kero Kero Bonito with ‘Break’. The latest single from their technicolored minds is as sweet as flaking out on any prior commitments in favour of a day of doing absolutely nothing. It’s a most animated ‘Break’ from whatever you’re doing at current, carrying you off to a land where lackadaisical is a totally acceptable pace.

Each of Kero Kero Bonito’s singles since 2014’s 'Intro Bonito' have pulsed and shined with their J-Pop sensibilities, but ‘Break’ plays it especially true to their carefree personalities. It’s a glittering, bubbly invitation direct from the band to “slow down the pace, so we can all go take a break.” In traditional KKB fashion, vocalist Sarah Perry intermingles verses in Japanese and English, her peppy soprano escorting listeners further into their world, where backing beats are seemingly inspired straight from video games and keys twinkle in a spirited dance of their own.

Whatever you’ve got penciled down for the rest of the day, Kero Kero Bonito will help you cancel, and as Perry so cheerfully declares, “there’s not much better than nothing at all.” Lauren Rearick
