Kero Kero Bonito
We’re Kero Kero Bonito, a band from London, England. We met on an internet forum in 2013; singer Sarah was born in Nagoya to a Japanese mother and British father, before moving to Kenilworth, UK at the age of 13, while producers Gus and Jamie have been friends since school.
We shared our pop universe on Intro Bonito (mixtape, 2014), Bonito Generation (album, 2016) and singles like “Flamingo” and “Trampoline”. In 2017 we returned to the suburbs that made us and started rehearsing with guitar, bass and drums.
We introduced our new style with TOTEP in February 2018, and our second album Time ‘n’ Place is coming soon. Signposted by the songs “Only Acting” (pop-punk noise) and “Time Today” (chipper Casiotone melancholy), Time ‘n’ Placee is our response to indie-rock history.
The Time ‘n’ Place tour is our first using a 5-piece live band. Playing selections from across our discography arranged for guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals, it will be our most raucous yet.
Tanukichan is the solo project of Bay Area-based Hannah van Loon. After growing up making and performing classical music and playing the violin, keys, bass and guitar, van Loon experimented with bluegrass and jazz and unexpectedly fell into making pop music with San Francisco band Trails and Ways. She toured and performed with the band for four years before feeling a need to focus on her own music again, which led to her creating solo songs and being introduced by a mutual friend to Chaz Bear of Toro Y Moi and Les Sins. Bear helped her to rework most of the songs and take chances on fully forming a new sonic direction.
Sundays, her debut full length as Tanukichan, is her first music since 2016’s EP Radiolove. Produced by Bear, the record is a shoegazy and personal approach to love, loss and longing, melding vague, devastating lyrics with gorgeous dream pop music. Though Bear and van Loon played all the instruments on the record, she does have plans to play the intimate tracks live both nationally and locally. The album very much feels like a new beginning for van Loon, her music, and her relationship to the area that she was raised in; it feels like an understated declaration of a new voice that she has developed and nurtured.
Sundays is a beautiful homage to recognizing your reality, and the wants of the people around you and deciding how you will move on and grow as a person. The music sounds at home both at a beach and in a quiet bedroom, music made for the weekend days where relaxing and reflecting commingle, the long summer days that you hope will never end.
