Kero Kero Bonito’s “When The Fires Come” Is A Mystic, Flaming Trip To The End

End of humanity

London bilingual artpop act, Kero Kero Bonito, explores New Age eschatology (study of apocalypse, aka our favorite subject) in their new mystic video “When The Fires Come.” The video portrays the trio surrounded by nature who quickly become stranded in the desert after the fire burns it all down. It’s a metaphorical depiction of our current climate change, but also a surreal glimpse into our own impending doom:

On the single, KKB shared:

“’When the Fires Come’ is about the worldwide wildfires heralding the seemingly imminent climate change apocalypse. It was partially inspired by our experience on tour in North California last year, when we got caught underneath the smoke cloud from the Camp Fire. The video was shot on the hottest day of 2019 in Britain.

It is the first song of a new project.”
