Boomkat Product Review:
The KVB channel PTV, MBV and J&MC in the gauzy shoegaze burns of Fixation, and with a more psych-style chug in Alarms. Invader’s Geoff Barrow gives White Walls from the Of Desire a Spacemen 3-style overhaul, beside the technoid Berlin version, the icy nip of Mark Reeder’s Stoned Wall Version, and the distorted TVAM blowout.
“Like a hazily remembered dream, U.K duo The KVB blend reverb-soaked shoegaze with minimalist electronic production to create their delicate and ephemeral sound.
Quietly epic and totally bewitching, with vocals blending into the trudging, smoky fog of synths, this EP has the kind of mysterious repeat-play quality that evokes Depeche Mode at their most ghostly.
This new release features two brand new songs "Fixation & Alarms", an Invada extended edit of White Walls, plus remixes by The KVB themselves and by Mark Reeder (New Order Remixer). This is an intermediate release between 'Of Desire' and the band’s next full length album.”
