Saccades, AKA Nicholas Wood – one half of The KVB – returns with the announcement of his new album ‘Land of The Hearth,’ releasing on exciting new imprint Old World – New World Recordings on 25 August. Today, he also shares the first track to be lifted from the album, ‘New Star Line,’ alongside a music video.

In 2017, Wood unveiled the Saccades project with an eponymous debut album; a record which saw the KVB’s gloomy atmospherics and glacial walls-of-sound swapped out for stripped-back psychedelic guitars. The follow-up to that debut, ‘Flowing Fades’, landed in April 2021.

Now, he returns with news of his new record ‘Land of the Hearth’, the title taken from a passage by Jonathon Meades, will be the third record from Saccades. Tipping his hat to house music, ‘Land of the Hearth’ puts synths and good times to the foreground, accompanied by dreamy vocals and carefree guitars.
