|“||And don't sleep on the latest track they've dropped, Kinetosis. This gem features Warabi's funk and dance-steeped programming, paired with a lively, bouncy bass beat that just won't quit. It's hard to know if these two are complementing or competing with one another, but whatever the case, the result is an overwhelming aural onslaught.||”|
Kinetosis is one of the four multiplayer songs released in Splatoon 2 Version 4.1.0. Like all battle songs, it has a random chance of being played during online matches. Kinetosis starts with a brief bass intro, leading into a series of punctuated synth beats while the bass plays strong in the background. The synth briefly alternates with an electric guitar, this alternation happening twice before moving into the verse, which features deep, husky vocals sung by Quinn. The bass line briefly drops during this section, only to return halfway through alongside the electric guitar, building up to the chorus, which features distorted, electronic vocals by Mashup. After the chorus finishes, the intro plays again, and the song loops. It can also be heard in Squid Beatz 2, with scores of 186 and 304 in Normal and Hard modes, respectively. In Splatoon 3, this song can sometimes play in the Battle Lobby.
Kinetosis is a scientific term used to describe motion sickness.
