One band’s trash is another band’s treasure. Imperial April began as a way to up-cycle songs that didn’t quite fit the mould of Victoria and Andy Knopp’s electro-pop project The Response. At first just a selection of songs burnt to CD-R for a mother’s day present, the project has taken on a life of it’s own. After years as a supporting musician lurking in the shadows, Victoria has found a voice as front person. Blending catchy melodies and contemplative lyrics, Imperial April deliver guitar heavy power pop that is sure to get stuck firmly in your head.
Imperial April are:
Victoria Knopp: Lead vocals, Bass
Andy Knopp (The Response): Lead guitar, keys, vocals
Emma Cameron (Emma Dilemma/Decades): Guitar, vocals
Katie Thompson (Katie Thompson)/ Paul Tatterson: Drums
