Capgun Coup was born amidst the banality of suburban Nebraska circa 2004. Post high school graduation, Sam Martin and Greg Elsasser, the driving creative forces of Capgun Coup, willingly dove head first into poverty in order to pursue music, bidding farewell to the possibility of financial stability. Their 2007 debut release Brought to you by NebraskaFish, much of which was written while the pair were still in high school, garnered them respect, a Team Love Records reissue, and multiple national tours. Capgun Coup’s current lineup consists of Martin, Elsasser, Jesse McKelvey, Eric Ohlsson, and uni-monikered bassist Roadie. The quintet took brief refuge at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, NE, where they had studio space as part of the musician residency program. Their new songs, which combine surf-rock guitars and beautifully dissonant vocals, are far more cohesive and mature than anything onNebraskaFish. Somehow McKelvey’s spastic guitar playing, Ohlsson’s drumming, and Roadie’s bass lines manage to bring together the creative tornadoes that reside in the heads of Martin and Elsasser. As Capgun Coup continues cementing their place in the independent music scene it has become clear that the band will cope with the pains of poverty in order to pursue something much larger.
