We love Kero Kero Bonito and their bubbly aerated, J-pop inspired electro-pop, but we’re also very much elated that the English trio seems to be stretching out their legs when it comes to sculpting new sounds and experimenting in new directions. They surprised us last month with scuzzy guitars and crunchy pop rock on Only Acting. Now, they delight us with a smooth shimmering, gauzy waltzing groove on Cinema, reminding us of acts like Yumi Zouma and Men I Trust in the process. A hint of chill psychedelic disco and some dreamy funk also saturate the dreamy swaying track. Cinema comes off KKB’s new four track EP, TOTEP, on which they explore a myriad of sounds. Streaming/purchase links for the self-released EP can be found on their website, here.

Those of you who’ve experienced Cinema live know the sheer power of the song. The moment when it plays is a moment no one forgets…  Everyone singing “you are, my cinema, I could watch you forever” as one likely brings countless people to tears. You could say Cinema is an electronic classic of the 2000s, a timeless number forged by an epic partnership between Benny Benassi and Skrillex also featuring Gary Go. It’s that spectacular tune that Luca Lush has chosen to remix, a daring endeavor with a huge payoff. The producer’s flip stays true to the original’s rousing emotion and varying landscape, but it gets a bold, stabbing douse of trap energy that comes with the occasional wall of dark blaring synths and plenty of shaking, rumbling bass. Luca Lush’s remix is a saga that ventures through various stages and phases, ending in steely waters with currents that crackle with electricity. This “cinema” is grand and theatrical, with varying highs and lows. Luca Lush’s tour de force is a free download, here.

A re-visit of Cinema’s Move On is an obvious necessity now that the Birmingham five piece has released a music video for the infectious track. The self produced song is a lustrously hooking indie pop song, but despite its vivid glow, it brims with bittersweet nostalgia. I’m left both lulled by the melodic song and mired in self reflection. Purchase Move On from iTunes.

I don’t want to move on from the sublime paradise I’ve wandered into, thanks to Cinema’s Move On. The indie/alt five piece from Birmingham boast a diverse musical background, playing a plethora of instruments between wich they swap duties during shows. On self produced single, Move On, they’ve given us a bittersweet heart render, a summery sparkler dipped in maudlin goo. Move On is available now on iTunes.
