Saccades, the solo project of The KVB’s Nicholas Wood, is today sharing ‘Like Everyday’, the first taste of a new album set for release early next year. When not writing, recording and performing with the Invada Records-signed synth/post-punk duo The KVB, Saccades is Wood’s outlet for his lighter, more carefree side – opting for blissed-out psychedelic pop over the cold, brutalist electronics of the former. 'Like Everyday' is first new material under the Saccades moniker since the self-titled debut LP released via Fuzz Club in 2017
Cooped up in his home in Manchester over lockdown, Wood made use of the newfound free time and set to work on a new collection of Saccades songs. ‘Like Everyday’, an early taste of the new material he’s since collated, is described by Wood as a slice of Ballardian synth-pop, replete with breezy electronics, languid guitars and echo-soaked vocals: “This song was written back in spring and it's about the idea of someone living their life through watching another person's facade of luxury. This year I've often read about people spying on their neighbours because of lockdown and so I imagined this all taking place in a Ballard-esque world of paranoia, isolation and opulent high-rises set against a fizzy synth-pop soundtrack.”
