Saccades Shares New Single/Video "Nearly Dreaming"

Manchester-based psych pop/indie/electronic musician Nicholas Wood aka Saccades (one-half of The KVB) has shared his new single “Nearly Dreaming” and its accompanying video.

The track features on his new album ‘Land of The Hearth,’ out this Friday (25 August) via new imprint Old World New World Recordings. Pre-order your copy here.

Land of the Hearth, takes its name from a passage by Jonathon Meades and signals a transition for Nicholas Wood, moving away from The KVB’s nocturnal soundscapes and industrial beats, and embracing a more Balearic sensibility. The album boasts a sun-kissed, dreamlike quality, occasionally nodding to the uplifting vibes of house music.

Saccades “Nearly Dreaming”

In 2017, Nicholas Wood introduced the Saccades project with a self-titled debut album, showcasing a departure from The KVB’s somber atmospherics and monumental soundscapes, embracing a stripped-back, psychedelic guitar-driven sound. The subsequent release, “Flowing Fades,” in April 2021, saw Wood reincorporate synths into his compositions, drawing inspiration from a diverse range of influences including J.G. Ballard, Serge Gainsbourg, 80s dream pop, and yacht-rock.
