Dark Captain Light Captain are a five-piece rock group from East London. They are comprised of Dan Carney (guitar, vocals), Giles Littleford (guitar, vocals), Chin Keeler (drums) , Laura Copsey (brass, electronics, vocals) and Michael Cranny (bass, vocals). Their music is influenced by atmospheres, the quest for a killer vocal harmony and a constant desire to make their hearts beat ever so slightly faster than normal.

The ‘Circles’ EP (June 2008) received radio support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Rob da Bank (Radio 1), Mark Radcliffe (Radio 2) and John Kennedy (Xfm), and was featured as experimental Single Of The Month in Mixmag.

Debut album ‘Miracle Kicker’ (October 2008) was co-produced by Robin Proper-Sheppard (The God Machine, Sophia) and showcased the band’s penchant for spine-tingling harmonies, electronic drones, gently picked folksy guitar and huge psychedelic endings.

‘Jealous Enemies’ (September 2008) was Single Of The Week on Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie’s Radio 2 show, and Download of The Week on US iTunes, garnering a fair few sales stateside. ‘Miracle Kicker’ placed at #33 in The Guardian’s Top 50 albums of 2008.

2009 saw more UK touring and a remix EP which featured blissed-out reworkings of ‘Miracle Kicker’ tracks from the likes of US electronic legend Hatchback. In September 2009 the band embarked on a short but successful tour of Germany and Austria in support of Robin Proper-Sheppard’s Sophia. ‘Mid-Session Interval’, the b-side to the original ‘Jealous Enemies’ single release, was also heard soundtracking a Royal Bank of Scotland TV advert.

The band have spent most of 2010 shutting themselves away and working on album number two. Expect gigs and plenty of new material from January 2011 onwards.
