Colorado Springs native Emily Knurr is bringing a new sound to the local music scene with her synth-pop project, Millicent. Formerly a singer-songwriter of the acoustic variety, Knurr turned her attention to dance beats and electronic production in 2013, and Millicent was born. In the years since, she's released several singles, a self-produced album and, most recently, the excellent EP, Deux. Produced in collaboration with Denver's Charlie Fitz, Deux has caught the attention of bloggers, music writers, and fans around the country with its catchy hooks, lush sonic textures, and impressive vocal performances from Knurr.
With support from drummer Tyler Cuchiara and bassist Steven De La Roche, Knurr has been performing as Millicent around Colorado in recent months. In this segment from episode 4 of Air Check, Knurr and Cuchiara join us for an in-studio performance of two songs, "Won't Be" and "Haze." Sandwiched in between is an interview in which the two discuss their musical style, vision, and what it's like to be a electronic group in a city full of guitar-driven rock bands.
