The KVB unveils scuzzed industrial side project Burma Camp
The KVB’s frontman has adopted a new alias focusing on the harsher edges of techno – get a taste here.
With The KVB moving in similar circles to the likes of Regis, Silent Servant and Shifted, some kind of movement from the the frazzled shoegaze-influenced surf rock that made up their Immaterial Visions LP into the harsher ends of techno and noise was perhaps inevitable. Going under the name Burma Camp, the project would seem to be Nicholas Wood’s first recorded movements into more industrial realms. Although Burma Camp’s first official release will arrive on Avian’s 10″ sub-label Mira in the near future with three other tracks, “Skin Depth” offers an early preview of the Burma Camp sound; the post-punk influences remain in the heavy, tribal drumming, while a rising tide of synth bass and scuzzy textures threaten to overwhelm the increasingly aggressive arrangement.
