Divus Julius presents…The KVB

The KVB is the nom de plume of Nick Wood and his partner Kat Day, a two-piece outfit from the UK who combine an electronic-shoegaze-industrial garage musical aesthetic with an intense visual live show. In the beginning The KVB was Wood’s bedroom project, an opportunity for him to explore different sonic textures outside of the confines of his ‘regular’ musical projects.

The KVB will perform tonight their sixth album, the follow up to 2016’s Of Desire titled Only Now Forever, at Sidecar.

Favourite Gig: The Coral

Since 1996 (for early adopters), and 2002, when the UK band The Coral released their eponymous first album (which wasted no time climbing the UK charts, resting at number 5). Their brand of psychedelic Rock/Folk has helped other bands to emerge within the new style. To date, the band has released eight studio sets, their last being Distance Inbetween (2016).

The Coral have releases their newest album, Move Through The Dawn and today they will play it in concert at Sidecar.

Dan Owen is made to love you

Although only 24 years old, Shrewsbury singer/songwriter Dan Owen’s soulful musical knack is undeniable. Owen became an overnight sensation after an audience member uploaded a video of him playing Bob Dylan’s ‘The Ballad of Hollis Brown’ online. With a hauntingly husky tone to his voice, and his own heart-felt lyrics to match, he is certainly one to watch in the upcoming indie-folk scene. He will `play tonight in Sala Sidecar by Cooncert.

So Long Forever Palace

The London boys Palace who have releases their debut LP So Long Forever  will play tonight at  Sidecar.

Palace sounds like a band that has always existed. Beautifully crafted and mature, their debut album So Long Forever  is sure to ascend them to the status of indie darlings. Fans of Foals and The National will especially appreciate their melancholy and unrushed vibe as well as their existential songwriting, which will stay with you long after the final play.

Local Bands: Evripidis and his Tragedies

Evripidis and his Tragedies is Evripidis Sabatis´ musical alter ego. Born in Athens and living in Barcelona, he plays and sings piano-based, highly melodic tunes where love, lust, and loss intertwine; summers are long and lazy; nights are haunting memories; childhood is naughty; memories are bittersweet; men are cruel; humor is black; and ghosts take the living for rides in cars.  Tonight at Sidecar with Rusos Blancos.

The muses of La Musa: Weyes Blood

Though Natalie Mering, who performs and records as Weyes Blood, chose to distort her project’s name (giving “Wise” an appropriately outré, olde feel) with a nod to the ocular (w’eyes), her entire output thus far has been an exercise in exploring the atemporal. She is a musician, a singer, after all, but the particular process of Weyes Blood’s development, and Mering’s experimentation with everything from early 2000s local-noise-scene strangeness to her present mastery of timeless balladry, highlight her as an meticulous sonic alchemist.

Weyes Blood’s new album, Front Row Seat To Earth, captivates immediately with its frank clarity in both sound and word. Though still retaining a deep influence of the classical often felt in her songs as a sense of ancient resonance, Mering is at her most intimate and vulnerable here, due in large part to her stunning vocals and simple, essential lyrical phrasing. Tonight in concert at sala Sidecar.
