The KVB is the audio/visual project of Klaus Von Barrel & 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 was initially started as a solo project by Klaus in 2010.
After frequent collaborations through the year, Kat joined The KVB permanently on synths and visuals in late 2011.
The KVB | Never Enough
The Blue Angel Lounge formed in 2006, led by singer Nils “O.” Ottensmeyer and Dennis Melster. They took their name from the club in New York City that in the 1960’s offered Nico (Velvet Underground) her first live performances in America.
Nico would remain an underlying influence on the band. Initially a 6 piece darkly psychedelic outfit, with their second LP “Narcotica” (8MM Musik, 2010), they began subtly introducing post-punk elements to their melodic songwriting, and the intensity of Nils O’s vocal began to come to the forefront.
The Blue Angel Lounge | In Distance
Anton Newcombe (founder of The Brian Jonestown Massacre), a fan of the band, assisted with production of “Narcotica”, and in 2012 The Blue Angel Lounge supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre on a 10 show tour of the United States, earning rave reviews.
As their popularity continues to grow, so does the anticipation for their 3rd LP, set for release in the 2nd half of 2013.
