Soccer Mommy and Kero Kero Bonito share new electro-pop song “rom com 2021” via Adult Swim Singles
If you’ve never felt hopelessly in love on the dance floor before, Soccer Mommy and Kero Kero Bonito might change that.
In July, the independent artist released “rom com 2004”, a sweet, cute and, finally, romantic song that could very well be in the background of a movie in which the shy but conventionally attractive girl falls head over heels. for the surprisingly kind and equally insecure jock. “What does that say about me, “she sings,” That I would rip my heart out for you just / To show you a piece of my real self. ”
On September 27, however, she released a remix of this song with British indie pop group Kero Kero Bonito, “rom com 2021”. This accelerated version contains hyperpop elements that make it more suitable for a video game than a movie. (It is probably no coincidence that the unique art and “2004” Musical clip introduces the artists as Mii characters.) Like the original track “2004”, it begs a lover to be just as crazy about them, but with more excitement than despair.
The two artists worked on new releases last year: in April, KKB released their fifth EP, Civilization II. Later this year, Soccer Mommy will perform at the All Things Go Music Festival, which will also feature HAIM, St. Vincent, Charli XCX and Lauv. She had to reprogram her tour dates in 2020, but is now back for a tour of the country this fall. Granted, the original tour was supposed to follow the release of his fourth album. color theory, but the anticipation only increased fan interest.
