London based group Kero Kero Bonito have released the visuals for their new amazing single “When The Fire Comes”. The song reminds us to their sophomore album Time ‘n’ Place that came out last year, due to the similar stylistic and whimsical tones. The new single has more of the synth levity than previous tracks, but it is more doom-and-gloom and patient.
After their last single “Swimming”, climate change is the issue that the indie-pop band try to tackle on this new single, accompanied with a post-apocalyptic music video, directed by James Hankins. The song talks about end times for the earth.
According to the band, “It was partially inspired by our experience on tour in North California last year, when we got caught underneath the smoke cloud from the Camp Fire. The video was shot on the hottest day of 2019 in Britain“.
Only last week, Kero Kero Bonito’s Gus Lobban told The Line Of Best Fit that “something is gonna happen sooner than you think”, and now we have “When The Fires Come”, with the band confirming that the new single is taken from an upcoming project, so new singles will surely be coming soon.
Don’t miss your chance to catch this awesome band on their tour of US and Canada next month. In the meantime, listen to “When The Fires Come” below.
