My Dear Mycroft is a New York City-based dark and moody indie rock band comprised of Joemca (guitar, vocals), Jess Luck (analog synth, vocals), and Rob Heath (drums). Named after Sherlock Holmes’s smarter and more misanthropic brother, the band explores nightmares, defeats, regrets, and the unknown – mining the darkest places in order to grow.

Their sonic landscape is impressionistic and murky, yet touching on the ethereal. My Dear Mycroft independently released two EPs, Dinosaur and Wiiiild,that explored various musical styles. With upcoming debut album Heaven’s Entertainment arriving on October 30th, the band has hit upon their core sound.

The LP was recorded and mixed at Strange Weather in Brooklyn, with additional recording at Joemca’s Laboratory in NYC.

Big Takeover is pleased to host the premiere of the hauntingly ominous and emotive lead single “The Ghost That Slows You Down.” The compelling number swirls with reflective piano notes, reverberating, ’80s-steeped synths, restlessly bashed percussion and drums, and Joemca’s impassioned vocal pleas.
