Originally written as the theme song for streetwear designer Kerwin Frost’s “Superstuffed” clothing line for Adidas, “The Sneaker Dance” follows Kero Kero Bonito’s 2021 mini-album Civilisation, which was critically acclaimed in publications such as Pitchfork, NME, DIY and others.
“We’ve known Kerwin for a little while and we were honoured to be asked to create this song,” the band said. “We traded ideas with him, inspired by both the Fourth World characteristics of KKB’s recent Civilisation mini-album and our earliest MIDI rap tracks, and very quickly came up with the carnivalesque stomp of “The Sneaker Dance.”
“The Sneaker Dance” explores the world of the Benchmates, the three animal characters featured in Kerwin’s designs, and details the dance routine undertaken by Lakeith – the nervy blue dog with the braced up teeth – when he sees a really special pair of sneakers. Do the sneaker dance. Dance as hard as you can.”
