Andrew and Victoria Knopp are the duo that make up New Zealand based indie-pop act, The Response. Their dynamic live show has allowed the duo to share the stage with such acts as Baio (of Vampire Weekend fame), Deep Sea Diver (Seattle), Big Scary (Australia) and Kate Boy (Sweden).
After releasing their third full length album ‘North of Nowhere’ in 2014 the pair packed a suit case and headed for Canada where they released a number of singles including ‘You Wanted to Go’ and ‘Hours’. Now back in New Zealand, The Response are excited to announce the release of their new EP on November 17. The 'What Are You Waiting For?' EP has been produced independently, with all duties undertaken by the resourceful pair.
The first single 'Great Escape' is a song about having trouble finding your place in this world, accompanied by sparse guitar, catchy synths and a driving beat.
The Response wields a wide range of sounds, 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.
