Adriana Alba (vocals/keyboards), Ferry Gouw (vocals/guitar) and Chris Steele-Nicholson (vocals/guitar/bass/drums/keyboards) met at film school, the group attempted to create a soundtrack for a friend's film. Jamming and experimenting in a rehearsal space from this period brought about the embryonic sounds of the Semifinalists' self-titled debut album.
The group toured with Lightspeed Champion in 2008, where Hynes played with the group in place of Alba on occasion.
In 2005 Gouw and Steele-Nicholson started a film production company called Muscle. Gouw has directed music videos for the latest musical project of Devonte Hynes, the folk-act Lightspeed Champion. Gouw directed the videos for Galaxy of the Lost and Midnight Surprise.
In early 2009, Steele-Nicholson started a new band called Oh Minnows.
