Hailing from Christchurch, New Zealand, Andrew and Victoria Knopp are the duo that makes up the indie-pop act The Response. Determined to faithfully translate their expansive albums from tape to stage, The Response have crafted a live show that utilizes every one of their limbs and will leave you wondering exactly how a mere two people can make so much noise. The Response has shared the stage with a variety of musicians and acts including Baio (of Vampire Weekend fame), Big Scary and Kate Boy. Three years ago they released their third album, North of Nowhere and have not taken a break or even slowed down since when it comes to writing, recording and performing live. The Response spent a couple of years living in Vancouver, Canada and during that period they released the singles “You Wanted To Go” and “Hours,” which earned them global airplay and has helped increase their fan base. Produced independently, all duties from writing, recording, mixing and mastering to artwork are undertaken by the resourceful pair. The Response recently made a return to New Zealand and have released a new single called “Holding Out For Something,” which has been compared to Arcade Fire, Liam Finn and Grizzly Bear.
