The band is a seven-piece, all all of whom have adopted the [[ThemeNaming shared last name "Campesinos"]]: Gareth (vocals, lyrics), Tom (guitar), Neil (guitar), Kim (vocals, keyboards), Rob (various instruments), Matt (bass) and Jason (drums). The band initially included singer/keyboardist Aleksandra, but she left the band amicably in 2009 and was replaced by Gareth's sister Kim. Original drummer Ollie left in early 2010 and was replaced by Jason, the band's tour manager and - to an extent, [[TheSixthRanger Rob]] (who had been touring with the band as an additional musician for about a year). A third original band member, violinist and keyboardist Harriet, left the band in September 2011 to continue her studies. A fourth, bassist Ellen, left the band in December 2012 to focus on her writing career, among other projects; The band waited until 2014 to introduce Matt, her replacement.

Although the band received considerable buzz and attention for their 2007 single "You! Me! Dancing!", they never quite found another mainstream breakthrough moment. They have, however, retained an intensely devoted cult following and their critical acclaim, with all six of their albums receiving solid reviews. Over the course of their career, they have moved from their early twee-pop sound to a noisier, indie pop sound that puts emphasis on their tight musicianship and lead singer Gareth's wry, darkly humorous and self-effacing lyrics.
