Kero Kero Bonito announce Civilisation II EP with lead single "The Princess and the Clock"

24 February 2021, 14:18 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Kero Kero Bonito have returned with news of their upcoming EP Civilisation II, and have unveiled "The Princess and the Clock" as the lead outing.

After teasing a new song coming soon earlier this week, Kero Kero Bonito have unveiled their vibrant new cut "The Prinncess and the Clock", which arrives as a first taster of their upcoming EP Civilisation II.

Kero Kero Bonito say of their new release, ""The Princess and the Clock" is the tale of a young explorer who is kidnapped while sailing the world, imprisoned at the top of a tower and worshipped as royalty by an isolated society. 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."

"The Princess and the Clock" marks the group's first outing since dropping their cover of Late Of The Pier’s "Heartbeat" in December last year.

Kero Kero Bonito's three-track Civilisation II EP will follow 2019's Civilisation I EP.
