She grew up wanting to become an artist, as she was very good at drawing – after her parents saw her passion and her talent, they found her a private teacher. Upon finishing elementary school, her parents sent her to the UK to continue her education. Sarah doesn’t usually talk about her parents but sometimes describes how she is very thankful for the support they showed and for pushing her forwards when she was not sure what she wanted to do. As she has spent so many years in the UK, she now holds both British and Japanese nationalities.
Sarah matriculated from a high school in London, and as she was determined to have a career in art, she enrolled at Kingston University near London, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts.
Career of a pop singer
Sarah began her career as an artist rather than as a singer. She had a Facebook page onto which she uploaded pictures of her work, and found jobs that way. She switched to being a pop singer of Kero Kero Bonito after Gus and Jamie, the two members of the band, started searching for someone for their band who could speak Japanese. They put an advertisement on “MixB” online board made specifically for Japanese people searching for work – Sarah was amongst the first people who applied for the position, and after her first rehearsal, she became an official member of the group.
Besides being their lead singer, Sarah is now also a DJ who goes by the name DJ Cryalot – she made her debut on 15 February 2019, but is still very passionate about art and is working in that field as well.
Kero Kero Bonito
Kero Kero Bonito – or KKB for short – is an indie pop band based in London, England, initially created in 2011, and is currently made-up of Sarah Midory Perry – better known as Sarah Bonito and who serves as their lead vocalist – and Gus Lobban and Jamie Bulled who are producers and who can play numerous instruments.
The name of the group is derived from Japanese words meaning frog croaks, and a special type of a fish – in Portuguese, the name of their band means ‘I want, I want, Beautiful’. The beginning of the band was influenced by some popular J-pop singers such as Kyary Pamuy Pamuy and dancehall, while the trio also tried to implement video game music into their songs. Their first mixtape was released in August 2014 entitled “Intro Bonito” – the trio wrote most of their songs using their Casio SA-45 mini keyboard.
They released “Bonito Recycling” in September 2014 which was a compilation of their songs remixed by various artists – their first single was released in November 2014 entitled “Build it Up”. In October 2015, the band had their very first North American tour. The band’s first studio album “Bonito Generation” was released on 21 October 2016 by Double Denim Records. At the beginning of 2018 and with the launch of their extended play “TOTEP”, the band’s style was somewhat changed as they began producing indie rock-pop music influenced by the bands Mount Eerie and My Bloody Valentine.
The band gained a wider recognition after the release of their extended play “TOTEP” which also included their single “Only Acting” which was officially released eight days before “TOTEP” landed. Their second studio album “Time ‘n’ Place” was released on 1 October 2018 which was quite different from their first album, but their fans have nevertheless loved what they did with their songs.
Personal life and relationships
Sarah is very secretive when it comes to her love life, as she hasn’t shared any details regarding any past and present affairs with the public.
Rumor has it that Sarah was dating a Japanese boy living close to her in London for a couple of months, until she became part of the Kero Kero Bonito band. The two split not long after due to jealousy as the man believed Sarah was cheating on him with one of the boys from the band. Although this hasn’t been confirmed, people believe that Sarah is indeed dating one of the two boys from the band, but nothing can be said with certainty as Sarah hasn’t commented on this herself. Judging by her social media accounts and her own statements, Sarah currently appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
