Elbow – “My Sad Captains” Video

By Chris DeVille / April 25, 2014

Former “new Radiohead” candidates Elbow have carved a long career out of mournful and ornate rock balladry; it’s amazing that it took them this long to title a song “My Sad Captains.” But they finally did it on the recent The Take Off And Landing Of Everything, and now that song has a video featuring footage from a young children’s dance class. Watch the clip below and try to figure out what it all means.

The Take Off And Landing Of Everything is out now on Concord.
