"K.K. Synth" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. As the song title implies, the composition was mainly composed using a synthesizer. The song appears to be based on the works of late 1960's and 1970's European electronic artists such as Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, and Jean-Michel Jarre, featuring slow, ambient synthesizer riffs and pops that contrast "organic" and "artificial" sounds. The song also bears noticeable similarities to the 1981 song "Pure Jam" by Japanese synthpop band Yellow Magic Orchestra.

Album cover[edit]

The album cover for "K.K. Synth" features K.K. Slider in a futuristic white suit with headphones hanging around his neck. The white background is covered in a connected assortment of nodes resembling the phone connector board on a Moog synthesizer, one of the earliest analog synthesizers to see widespread usage in popular music. The phone connectors were used to plug in patch cables that selectively deactivated parts of the synthesizer's signal to produce specific sounds. In New Horizons, the German title of the song "K.K. Synthiepop" is written on the bottom right.
