Kero Kero Bonito Prep 'Civilisation II' EP, Share New Song
Watch the group's video for "The Princess and the Clock"
Published Feb 24, 2021British indie darlings Kero Kero Bonito have announced their follow-up to 2019's Civilisation I EP. Part two will arrive on April 21 via Polyvinyl.
Today, they've shared a brand new single titled "The Princess and the Clock," alongside an animated video from Dan W. Jacobs. The track is about "a young explorer who is kidnapped while sailing the world, imprisoned at the top of a tower and worshiped as royalty by an isolated society," according to a statement.
As the band explained: "Trapped in her chamber, she spends years dreaming of escaping, until one day she disappears. A legend of our own invention, 'The Princess and the Clock' was written before COVID emerged, though the long, lonely hours and escapist dreams its protagonist experiences will be relatable to many right now. It's a song for anyone who has ever felt trapped, lost and alone."
KKB's latest full-length album was 2018's Time 'n' Place.
