The Response opening for Kate Boy on Tuesday night.
Originally from Christchurch, New Zealand, Andrew and Victoria Knopp make up the Vancouver-based indie-pop duo. The Knopps share vocals, while Andrew plays guitar and does loops and Victoria plays glock, bass synth and drums.
North of Nowhere is their latest, and third, album. The Knopps produced it themselves and took care of everything from writing, recording, and mixing to artwork.
From the bio: “The new album has sounds ranging from reverb drenched banjo to synth pop and fuzzed-out guitars, brought together by a strong song-writing voice drawing influence from dominant indie acts such as Grizzly Bear, Arcade Fire and Sufjan Stevens.”
