The heavy pop-pulse of Manchester’s The KVB comes to fruition this week with its new release Unity (Invada Records) which is expected for release on 11/26/21. Ahead of the release, the duo is giving the final taste of the album alongside a Sapphire Goss directed music video for the haunting-yet-euphoric “Unbound.”
Produced and mixed by Andy Savours (Black Country New Road, My Bloody Valentine, The Horrors), Unity is The KVB’s most potent and immediate record yet represents an exciting development in the band’s sonic journey and will be released on 26th November via Invada Records. Across the album’s ten songs, The KVB masterfully pull together all their trademark components; radiant guitars, textural synths and an ear for a moody, brooding melody all presented here with a renewed dynamism.
The initial writing sessions for the new album Unity took place in Spain in early 2019, where the duo found influence from “half built luxury villas, still unfinished from the crash in 2008. There was something eerie and beautiful about the desolate landscapes and concrete in the sunshine.” There has always been an element of dystopia through their sound, but now there is also more of a rapturous release.
