Sophia Knapp
"Close to Me"
Playing on Thursday at Knitting Factory
(361 Metropolitan Ave., Williamsburg)
Get: Tickets ($8-$10) | Directions 

The sounds of ‘70s AM radio are never far from Brooklyn pop singer Sophia Knapp — whether in her work with the psych-pop duo Cliffie Swan (née Lights) or on her new solo debut, Into The Waves. On the cut “Close to Me,” which is on the new album, you can almost hear Fleetwood Mac-era Stevie Nicks and Olivia Newton-John in the San Francisco native’s lithe vocals and breezy disco melodies.

Download the track here and watch the music video for “In Papers,” which is also on the new release. Sophia Knapp plays the Knitting Factory on Thursday night.
