For a track to be “catchy”, it doesn’t always need to slap you in the face. When a track is understated and melodic it can be entrancing. One word I would definitely use to describe King Casio’s new single “BBBC” is entrancing.
This track blends genres to the point where you can’t help but be reminded of the folktronica group the Beta Band or a tranquilized 90’s Beck. Perhaps most accurately described as lo-fi bedroom pop, King Casio plays with melancholic levity in both the lyrics and their music video for this recent single.
King Casio’s Aaron King described “BBBC” as “a mix of a lot of conversations we’ve had as a band. I think the song is a celebration of the ocean and Harry Nillson, but also our worry about climate change.”
It seems the lyrical content of the track is about as expansive as their influences, citing both Nillson and lo-fi hip hop. You can check out the music video for “BBBC” below, and make sure to keep an eye out for any new releases by King Casio.
