Dark Captain (formerly - 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 sentiment of their songs, which they write about things they feel very strongly about, ranges from malignant and accusatory to wildly optimistic, and they have been compared to Kings Of Convenience, The Beta Band, Elliot Smith, The Violent Femmes and even The Pogues. Outside the band their hobbies include art, fatherhood, reading, writing and walking.
