Nicholas Wood and Kat Day are The KVB, a shoegaze-indebted synth-pop duo who are gearing up to release a brand new EP on Geoff Barrow’s Invada label.
Having started out with a handful of vinyl and cassette releases, their sound swiftly grew into a being of its own. Leaning heavily on hardware (having rummaged through Barrow’s vintage synth collection for previous recordings). On Fixation, vocals blend into the trudging, smoky fog of synths. Quietly epic and totally bewitching, the track has the kind of mysterious repeat-play quality that evokes Depeche Mode at their most ghostly.
Listen to the track below and check out the artwork for the EP below. The Fixation / White Walls EP is released on vinyl digital on 19 May via Invada Records UK.
