Nemo was an American indie rock band formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2002 by Dennis Tyhacz & Luke McCartney. The band took their name from the character Captain Nemo in the novel 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.
Their debut album Signs of Life was released in June 2004 on Binge Records. The album was notable for its unique blend of new wave, ethereal acoustic sounds, and inspired indie rock. It was recorded entirely in an apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2003 prior to becoming one of the final LP's to be mastered at the Vic Thrill Salon in Brooklyn (shortly before the Salon was closed in 2004). McCartney & Tyhacz later recorded in a group called The Sound Mirrors, and they released their debut LP "The Calling" in 2007, also on Binge Records.
