NEW YORK’S BROTHER SISTER DUO KNOX IN DIM EP OUT NOW ON BOYSNOIZE RECORDS
Red Bull Music Academy’s 2013 participants
Supported by John Digweed, Boys Noize, Pedro Winter
Nic and Eliza Coolidge are KNOX, a brother-sister duo residing in New York City, whose sonic experiments land them somewhere between the taut, emotive beat-work of James Blake and the acoustically- powered atmosphere of Bon Iver. KNOX’s tracks are shifting sonic playgrounds with seething, surging production, plaintive guitar lines and ethereal harmonies weaving throughout.
Formed in March 2011, KNOX finds themselves working with the likes of John Tejada, Throwing Snow, Paula Temple, Sasha, Maya Jane Coles, and Jori Hulkkonan, as well as being one of Red Bull Music Academy’s 2013 participants. “We are inspired by so much,” the band has said of their influences, “From the consequential sound events of walking down the street, to classical music, to industrial underground. We try to absorb as much as we can and emit what feels natural.”
KNOX recently released their fourth EP, In Dim, is a swirling two-track vortex of hymn-like vocals, deep bass and immersive synth lines. With one side featuring Sister KNOX’s vocals and the other Brother KNOX’s, the EP has a cohesive back-to-back duality. Close the door, turn your lights low and listen in. As in their last EP “Thieving of Well“ (2014), “In Dim“ is accompanied by the additional remix by Philadelphia’s warped electronic maestro, Moon Bounce, known for combining soulful vocals with jagged percussion.
“With consistency as their canvas and versatility as their key tool, KNOX fuses together everything that’s “right” with indie bands while intertwining human feeling into the many layers of electronic music.”
