Just a week after whining about how Kero Kero Bonito hadn’t put out any new music to soundtrack this summer, they’ve dropped “Chicken,” their latest charming one-off. It doesn’t switch up their bubbly formula too much, but it’s still effortlessly fun. “People in the club, better get up/ We’re gonna show you how it’s done,” it starts. “Or are you chicken?” Sarah Bonito goads later on. The back half of the track pulls from KKB’s bag of tricks — there’s the Japanese rapping, some shark chomps ripped straight out of a video game, and a devilish snarl that keeps you on your toes. It’s a short one, but the trio certainly knows how to leave you wanting more. Listen below, and press repeat.
