If there's anything I've learned about KKB, its that they cannot be defined. Great new track.

Wait, this isn't Flamingo.
But wow, it's definitely a new direction for KKB.
This feels like a weird mesh of Bonito Generation and Time N Place, and I'm living for it.

As others mentioned, this is a wonderful blend of the Bonito Generation and Time n Place sound. Perhaps KKB will be taking a more apocalyptic direction with their new project. The themes that KKB develop with each new album are compelling so I expect the band to continue with their surprises. I enjoyed the track overall though I seem to appreciate KKB singles more when I listen to it in the context of their full length projects.

Great!

The sound is a nice blend of all they've previously done with the cool windpipes and jungle-y percussion. The lyrics are more defined and mature, like on Time 'n' Place. I really enjoy the manipulated vocals and blooming chorus.

I hope this is for an upcoming album now.
