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. They have played extensively in the Midwest, as well as touring the UK.

2013 brought a new release for the band and revamped line up with Tommy Oerding joining on drums. Working once again with up and coming producer, Steven Gillis at Transient Sound, Stereostatic Funicular(their sixth release 9.3.2013) is an exciting evolution from their breakthrough album SALT in 2010.

The band is currently in the studio working on new material to be released in 2014.

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 disappointed.
