ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Girls on the Run is filled with timeless and lyrically rich pop/rock tunes driven by beautiful and emotionally raw boy/girl harmonies cleverly layered between catchy guitar hooks and thumping rhythms.

Knock Knock was formed in 2000 and quickly became a popular local draw in their hometown of Sacramento, California. The band earned opening spots for indie favorites Jackpot and !!! and eventually recorded their debut, Warm Fronts, Cold Shoulders, in 2004. The record gained momentum through college rock radio, where one reviewer from Davis, California's KDVS stated, "Knock Knock may have released the best pop record this year".

The band continued to play throughout Northern California and garnered several Sammie Award Nominations for Best Pop Band. In 2008, Knock Knock achieved their breakthrough with the release of their sophomore effort, Girls on the Run. Reviews were generally ecstatic, to the point of well known Sacramento News and Review scribe, Jackson Griffith, using the adjective "godlike" when describing the record. Seriously.

The band continues to push Girls on the Run through their (in)famously personal, hilarious, and often moving live show, where (seemingly) drunken stage banter and audience participation rubs elbows with honest-to-god rock n' roll grit and heart-on-the-sleeve slow dancing weepers. Comparisons have been made to the Talking Heads, Yo La Tengo, Roxy Music, Fleetwood Mac and Wilco, if you're into that sort of thing. If not, I can at least say --with absolute certainty-- that Knock Knock sounds nothing like the current line-up of King Crimson.
