All Music Guide:
Chicago indie rock duo the Capricorns is Heather Lynn and Kirsten Nordine, who use vintage Casio keyboards obtained at garage sales to produce their retro synth rock sound. Forming the band mainly for fun, the Capricorns rarely tour due to members living far apart and commitments to school and other projects such as book writing. Still, the band got a following and as a result, the first record, The Capricorns Are Gonna Get You, went out of print. Two more records, In the Zone and Go the Distance!, followed. Highlights in the Capricorns catalog include a song appearing on a Kill Rock Stars compilation and a remix by Tricky.
