The KVB is the audio/visual project of Klaus Von Barrel and Kat Day, based in London, UK. Combining shoegaze guitars, minimal synth melodies, hypnotic drum machine beats and reverb drenched vocals with abstract imagery,
The KVB @ Start the Bus.
Expectation exceeded: a set dominated by healthy influences like Spiritualized's 'laser guided melodies' album, early Black Rebel Motorcylce Club, lots of The Vacants , Alan Vega and Heck!, the odd reference to rave culture.
Incredibly even their encore cover of the Stones' "Sympathy for the devil" made a very ordinary song sound great.
A contender for gig of the year.
