Former film student Chris Steele-Nicholson formed Oh Minnows in 2009, shortly after the disbandment of cult indie trio Semifinalists. In the same year, Oh Minnows released their first EP, Might, in June. They cite their influences as electronic music composer Delia Derbyshire and The Beatles.
The new album For Shadows was recorded from the latter half of 2009 to the start of 2010, in various locations in America: Chicago, San Francisco and North Carolina. While recording the album, Chris mentioned that inspiration came from working on a film project with a friend.
During his time with Semifinalists, Steele-Nicholson and fellow band members Adriana Alba and Ferry Gouw released two albums; their self-titled debut album was released in 2006 on V2 Records. Their second album, "2", was released in 2008, without Alba. In the same year, Semifinalists toured with Lightspeed Champion.
Oh Minnow's latest single, You'll Never Know Us, comes from his upcoming debut album For Shadows, which will be released on July 25th 2011 through Young and Lost Club.
