Only Now Forever

While Invada have generally focused on soundtrack releases in the past couple of years they do still find time to plug new band fare every now and then. Their latest drop sees Berlin duo The KVB return to the label with new LP Only Now Forever. Mind you, the group’s mixture of Motorik grooves, psychy lyrics and synth-pop ... synths is cinematic enough that something from this record could easily crop up in a film sometime soon. Depeche Mode, obviously. New Order, obviously.

Burma Camp
Burma Camp

Burma Camp is the electronic side project of The KVB, a male/female duo that blend shoegaze and minimal electronics. Burma Camp’s self-titled cassette is somewhat different mixing techno, drones and electro, wrapping them up in a heavy industrial blanket. Cassette only, limited to 50 copies on Clan Destine.

Fixation / White Walls EP

Geoff Barrow’s Invada label takes a break from the soundtracks to press up this fine EP from synth-gaze duo The KVB. Fixation / White Walls has the band’s original songs sharing wax with remixes from Mark Reeder, Invada, and the band themselves, as well as an extra remix by TVAM that can be accessed via the bundled download code.

Mirror Being

Available on CD or Frosted clear vinyl with download card on Invada. Having been in Invada studios recently, recording their full-length due for release later in 2015, Invada have decided to press Berlin’s The KVB’s cassette onto CD and limited vinyl. An imagined soundtrack to a dystopian future, you’ll love it if you’re into Drokk or that Mega-City One sound. Now then, where’s my Oberheim?

Total Immersion / Total Immersion (The KVB Remix)

One man experimentation focussed electronic rock band TVAM has shifted his sights onto the kraut/psych sound and brought us Total Immersion on his own label Psychic Data, and it’s wall of sound that journeys off into space. The flip side comes with a remix from Invada based dark synth wave duo The KVB.


Saccades is in fact Nicholas Wood, he of The KVB. When that band took a break last summer, Wood snuck in a bit of recording time in order to craft his debut solo record, and now here it is! Compared to his other work, Saccades is brighter, dreamier and poppier, very effectively mining some psychedelic vibes. Released by Fuzz Club.

Of Desire

The second record from KVB does an excellent job mixing synthesizers and a bass-heavy rock throb with classic-style dramatic vocals. Of Desire could have emerged from one of the late 80’s finer bands. Made at Invada studios using some wonderful synths and released on Geoff Barrow's very own Invada label.

Flaamingos / The KVB
Split EP

Nice and direct split release from Felte Records, who have selected two groups they reckoned might compliment each other well. Flaamingos sound pleasingly deep and danceable in their bright synth-pop-haze, which The KVB's electronically souped-up shoegaze compliments very nicely. Three tracks for each artist, 12" vinyl.
