UK’s upcoming duo The KVB was formed in 2010 by Nicholas Wood and Kat Day. In those 8 years they kept themselves very busy. First they released a number of limited cassette and vinyl releases before 2012 when their first full-length Always Then was released. The year after they released Immaterial Visions with new material and Minus One re-releasing material that had previously come out in the form of digital downloads and extremely limited cassettes. In 2015 they released Out of Body EP on Anton Newcombe’s (Brian Jonestown Massacre) A Records label. They had recorded the EP the year before at Anton’s Berlin studio with drummer Joe Dilworth, who had worked in the past with Stereolab.
