Local Enemy from Merthyr Tydfil in Wales is the alt-rock quintet of Daneil Casey (Vocals), Connor Evans (Lead Guitar), Lloyd Fear (Rhythm Guitar), Andrew Cooper (Drums) and Liam O’Shea (Bass).
Blousy guitars meet a grungy-garage bass and percussion, which allows Local Enemy to deliver music with a distinctive sound that captures the attention. Rattling tempo keeps the audience fully engaged as the quintet add melodic and wow-effect strings to the compositions as a growling vocal adds the finishing touches to an out-fit you just want to hear more from.
The earthy, unadorned roots of the tracks are gilded by the two guitars and rather than appearing at odds, they give the material, strangely enough, an even more frayed edge in which to invest time.
Having had the opportunity to take a listen to the Local Enemy back-catalogue of music, which dates to just under a year ago, each new piece has added a further dimension and one can only hope they package something together for those who are not local and don’t have the opportunity to see them live.
Their latest track, which appeared a few days ago is Take Control.
