After weeks of anticipation, the brand new album from Manchester-based post-punk duo, The KVB, is finally released today! Artefacts (Reimaginings From The Original Psychedelic Era), as the title suggests, features 11 tracks of unique interpretations from the groundbreaking and influential psychedelic rock explosion of the 1960s. Fans have already tuned in to the album’s first two singles, a fantastic version of Status Quo’s “Pictures Of Matchstick Men” as well as a slowly throbbing, dark wave take on 13th Floor Elevators’ tripper “Reverberation,” and now, just as the full album is being released to all digital platforms as well as CD, The KVB share another side of their new project.
Today, the band has released a phenomenal visual interpretation of the album set to the sounds of their “Matchstick Men” cover. Filmed in the gorgeous rolling hills of the English countryside, the music video captures the candid, meditative nature of The KVB’s musical alchemy, crafted by Nicholas Wood and Kat Day. Whether focusing on natural objects like the exposed bedrock of the otherwise verdant country landscape, or turning the camera (literally) on themselves, The KVB showcase the cosmic depth of the seemingly mundane material world.
Featuring superb cover versions of many more tracks from Them to The Troggs to The Pretty Things to The Who, Artefacts (Reimaginings From The Original Psychedelic Era) is released today on digital and CD with the vinyl version following a bit later in the year.
