We are very pleased to announce that our new album ‘Only Now Forever’ is officially out now!.

Buy it direct from Invada Records or your local record shop, The last few copies of the limited edition transparent vinyl with black splatter are available via Invada RecordsThe KVB have released their sixth album, entitled Only Now Forever . Whilst holding evident inspiration from previous times, the sound this London-founded duo present is progressive and distinctly new in every sense. Idyllic at times; gritty in others, each bar is as enchanting as the last, leaving you in a melancholic trance. Offering poignant lyricism that explores modern anxieties that plague many, the duo manage to imbue feelings of empowerment, fighting such struggles with a deceivingly sanguine sound. This seamless juxtaposition is perhaps their best trait. Will appeal to fans of Depeche Mode, The Soft Moon, New Order, Nine Inch Nails and My Bloody Valentine.

This week also saw the release of 2 new lyric videos for the album single’s ‘On My Skin’ and ‘Afterglow’, both made by Kat Day.

 

In just over 1 week from now, we begin our seven week European album tour.

The KVB are gearing up to the release of their sixth album, entitled ‘Only Now Forever’, which will be released October 12th via Invada Records.

The band have now shared new single “On My Skin” which the band describe as “the most openly romantic track on our new album”. They go on to explain “It’s a song that deals with the glowing anticipation of new relationships and the uncertainty and optimism whilst falling in love. How people have a presence even when they are not present, and how memories can linger and infatuate your mind. Treading the lines between euphoria and melancholia, it also recognises that in these delicate beginnings, nothing can last forever.”

After intense touring their 2016 release ‘Of Desire’, The KVB returned to their home to further immerse themselves in sonic experimentation. The resulting Only Now Forever heralds the next chapter in the adopted-Berliners dark, electronic pop development. “On our new album we wanted to take everything we had learned in the studio recording our last album and apply it to self-producing this album,” explains the band. Recorded entirely in their Berlin apartment throughout 2017 the band decided they wanted to take a freer approach to writing and recording. “In the past, we had always tried to restrict ourselves productions wise, to what was possible to play live as a duo, but this time we wanted to expand our compositions and instrumentation, and let the atmosphere dictate the layers of sound.”

Offering poignant lyricism that explores modern anxieties that plague many, the duo manage to imbue feelings of empowerment, fighting such struggles with a deceivingly sanguine sound. This seamless juxtaposition is perhaps their best trait. “For us it is an album of contrasts: light yet dark, uplifting yet melancholic, romantic yet unsettling.”

The ethereal cover ,mirrors dreamy songs such as ‘Live In Fiction’, ‘Cerulean’ and ‘Violet Noon’ – the latter a romantic ode to the apocalypse. In reaction to the anxieties of now, there are more aggressive moments on the album, such as the title track ‘Only Now Forever’ and the single ‘Above Us’, a driving defiance against modern life. Dark and seductive tracks like ‘Afterglow’ & ‘Into Life’ show the influence being in Berlin has had on making the album, a place that has been their home for the past four years.

The duo will take Only Now Forever on the road across the UK and Europe following the October release.

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”, the vocals blend into the trudging, smoky fog of synths. Quietly epic and totally very bewitching, the track has the kind of mysterious repeat-play quality that evokes Depeche Mode at their most ghostly.
