British pop sensations Gus, Sarah, and Jamie of Kero Kero Bonito are on tour in support of their latest album Bonito Generation which debuted only a few weeks ago. Chicago readers might be interested in seeing them at Sub-T on October 26 and national readers are encouraged to check out their full tour schedule.

Tell us one scent and some memories strong attached to that scent.
The smell of 7-Eleven reminds us of playing in Chicago.
What songs do you have on repeat right now?
What were your favorite movies when you were growing up?
All three of us say the Disney Hercules.
What is the most meaningful interaction you’ve had with a fan of your music?
Some parents introduced Jamie to their kid, who was probably 5 or 6, after our set at Latitude. I asked him what games he played and he just replied “Sick Beat, Flamingo, Build It Up“.

They’re actually slowing down. Trap’s been hip hop for about a decade.
