The Very Knees have been performing locally for years. However, it wasn't until last year that band visionary Dave Petrovich (vocals, guitar) solidified the act with the addition of Jon Thomas (bass, vocals). "Basically content-wise, we're delivering a really fun, sort of party kind of dance atmosphere rather than a kind of boring, really static, indie-rock, guitar-bass-drums sound," said Cleveland resident Petrovich, a 1988 Westlake High School graduate. "We wanted to do something that was more along the lines of a combination of the Strokes and Hall & Oates. More really catchy and accessible but also not corny or phony. There's a little niche that I don't think has been filled here in Cleveland. Like bands from around here have really all developed personalities, which is great. There isn't really a lot of put-ons going on. However, saying that, I also think that there's this sort of void where nobody around here -- to my knowledge -- has been doing anything really dance-y. So we're high-energy and rock music, but also dance music." Petrovich describes the band's sound as slang pop, which is built upon familiar -- both old and new -- musical and pop cultural references.
