The KVB / UK
Having begun life as a solo bedroom project in Southampton to experiment with ideas around minimal electronica and shoegaze, the now Berlin-based duo have released since then four albums of woozy and immersive anthems. ‘Of Desire’, their last album, takes in influences such as Death In Vegas, Scott Walker and Roxy Music to create something that is at once familiar and yet inventive and original. The album is their second LP on Portishead’s Geoff Barrow’s label, Invada Records. Steeped in musical history, The KVB works exude devotion and somehow materialize a world that only they seem to have access to.
