Nicholas Wood and Kat Day are The KVB and for around 10 years they’ve been crafting an immersive, hypnotic, melodic atmospheric sound without ever allowing the quality to ever dip below excellent.” Their latest track “World On Fire” is a coruscating slice of driving danceable drone psych-pop and was inspired by the double meaning behind the tracks title. For example, when you’re  encouraged to go out and “set the world on fire” by your well-meaning mum she probably isn’t expecting you to turn into an arsonist or go full-on Jimmy Cagney style surrounded by gas-filled Horton Spheres- “Top of the world ma!” 

The duo says ““World On Fire” was written in late 2019 and at its core, it’s about duality and how a phrase like “set the world on fire,” which sounds so destructive, is also about doing something remarkable. We wanted it to be a phrase that is deliberately open to interpretation in this song. Over time we have all become desensitized to bad news and horrific events through television and social media. In much the same way as people slow down to look at a car crash, it feels like we’ve all become more and more obsessed with watching the world on fire.”

New single released 21st July 2021 via Invada Records
