After touring the UK with Loop and Australia in December 2013 with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The KVB's six-track EP is the culmination of a week-long recording session at Anton Newcombe's studio in Berlin. They recruited the help of Joe Dilworth (Stereolab) to contribute live drums to the recordings , and this was the first time the band have worked outside of their own studio set-up at their home in South London. Out of Body is a further exploration of the band's interest in phenomenology, bodily immersion and consciousness. Introspective lyrics are suspended in dream-like melodies, further expanding upon the duo's hypnotic aesthetic which they explore both sonically and visually on the record. The KVB is the audio/visual project of London youngsters Nicholas Wood & Kat Day, who combine reverb-heavy wall-of-sound guitars, minimal, haunting strings and grinding bass synths, messed-up motorik drum machine beats and delay-drenched vocals with a backdrop of imagery to accompany the symphony, that's nothing short of life-affirming. Such full sensory assaults have seen The KVB's live following swell and their gig schedule become busier all the time, with multiple European headline tours as well as a West Coast USA tour in summer 2012 since the release of their debut album Always Then. The KVB is a group with a sense of urgency about it, to do what they need to do, with full commitment and without delay.
