Blousy guitars meet a grungy-garage bass and percussion, which allows Local Enemy to deliver music with a distinctive sound that captures the attention”— EmergingIndieBands.com
“…high tempo riffs and drumming that to me wouldn’t be out of place on the first Arctic Monkeys record”— The Lemon Underground
Local enemy are an indie rock n’ roll gang from Merthyr Tydfil. Inspired by heights of the Britpop by Oasis, The Stone Roses and updated with a modern slant reminiscent of Catfish and the Bottlemen and Kasabian; the result is plenty of attitude, swagger, no affectation and songs that get right up into your personal space. The band have played alongside Circa Waves, Lethal Bizzle, Sundara Karma and Man Made and toured across the UK, including a night at the legendary Dublin Castle, Camden. In May 2016 the lads released their first EP ‘Something for the Weekend’ and we’re pretty sure that’s foreshadowing for their appearance at Swn Festival.
The five-piece are once again proof that Merthyr Tydfil is one of the best new breeding grounds for new Welsh music. GET ON IT!
