British audio-visual duo Nicholas Wood and Kat Day are The KVB. The twosome is famous for the addition of visual elements to their music, which mainly blends shoegaze and electronic sounds. The KVB’s 2012 debut album, Always Then, boasts brittle beats and sonic blasts, although their sound later evolved into a more streamlined and sharp-edged style, as demonstrated on Only Now Forever, the duo’s 2018 album release. Experience their epic tunes at Mao Livehouse this week.
