The Locals are an alt-pop, indie-rock trio from Chicago. Fronted by singer and songwriter Yvonne Doll, co-founded by bass player Christy Nunes, The Locals have been a part of the Chicago music scene for the last decade. The Locals have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Joan Jett, The Cliks, Girl in a Coma, Pat DiNizio, Lovehammers and more. They have played marquee stages and music fests all over the US including: Summerfest (Milwaukee, WI), YouBloom (Los Angeles, CA), Dewey Beach Pop Fest (Dewey Beach, DE), MidPoint Music Fest (Cincinnati, OH), Halstad Market Days (Chicago), Milwaukee Pride (Milwaukee, WI), Chicago Pride (Chicago, IL), House of Blues (Chicago), Lincoln Hall (Chicago, IL), Double Door (Chicago, Il), Schubas (Chicago, IL), Hard Rock Cafe (Las Vegas, NV), and more. The Locals are thrilled to have just returned from 2 showcases at SXSW 2015.
In 2014, Working once again with up and coming producer, Steven Gillis at Transient Sound, they released "The Willful Suspension of Disbelief", the follow up single to "Stereostatic Funicular"(their sixth release 9.3.2013). The band is currently working a new full length cd due out late 2015.
The music is bright, guitar-laiden, ultra catchy, alt-pop, that delivers tasty earbits from each song's start to finish. Fans of The Pixies, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Killers will not be dissapointed.
