The KVB Share Brightly Lit Ballad From Looming Only Forever LP



Unlike the tense head rush hooks and off-the-rails overtones of The KVB’s last single, “Above Us,” there seems to be a light guiding us to the end of the guitar-spliced, synth-laced tunnel that is “On My Skin.” According to the Berlin-based duo, longtime couple Nicholas Wood and Kat Day, “it’s the most openly romantic track on our new album”—a brightly lit ballad, essentially. And yet not all will always be well in the world.

“The song deals with the glowing anticipation of new relationships,” they continue, “and the uncertainty and optimism whilst falling in love. How people have a presence even when they are not present, and how memories can linger and infatuate your mind. Treading the lines between euphoria and melancholia, it also recognises that in these delicate beginnings, nothing can last forever.”

The whole LP proceeds with that plan, striking welcome contrasts between darkness and light, joy and melancholy, love and imminent loss. Check out another track below, along with a complete rundown of the record and upcoming tour dates….
