Check out the Berlin based duo who blend reverb-soaked shoegaze with minimalist electronics

The 21st November 2017 was one of the very best days of the year for yours truly as I was fortunate to have seen a duo called The KVB play live at The Joker in Preston Circus, Brighton in support of their terrific ‘Of Desire’ album. It was a really fab concert – read the review HERE.

After intense touring ‘Of Desire’ in Europe, Asia and beyond, The KVB returned to their studio to further immerse themselves in sonic experimentation . The resulting ‘Above Us’ single heralds the next chapter in the adopted-Berliners dark, electronic pop development. With waves of synthesizers, flourishes of surf guitar and sequences driving with nervous energy, the tension finally relieves with a surging, euphoric chorus. Brighter and more expansive than ever, the track demonstrates the bands growing ability to create sonic journeys, yet retains the atmosphere synonymous with The KVB.

The KVB ‘Above Us’ single

Band members Kat and Nick have stated that ‘Above Us’ is about defiance in reaction to the anxieties of modern life. In a world where you and your data are the product, ‘Above Us’ seeks to reclaim the power over yourself and to make your own decisions.”

The KVB have announced that they will be returning back to Brighton to play a gig at the Green Door Store on Tuesday 30th October as part of their biggest ever UK/European tour made up of 37 appearances.
