London indie rock act My Sad Captains formed in 2009, made up of guitarist/sonic manipulator Nick Goss, vocalist/guitarist Ed Wallis, bassist Dan Davis, and drummer/vocalist Jim Wallis. The bandmembers took their name from a line in a poem from Thom Gunn and cultivated a hypnotic, pulsing indie rock sound. Following a few early singles, the band released debut album Here & Elsewhere in 2009, following up in 2011 with Fight Less Win More. They toured internationally in support of both records, playing the South by Southwest festival as well as sharing a stage on tours with acts like Califone and Still Corners. Third album Best of Times materialized in 2014 on the Bella Union label.
