Biography

Local Speed Delivery is an enthusiastic, self-willed and experienced poprock band from Deventer, The Netherlands. The band has performed at many venues and at various small festivals.

 

The mainspring of the band is to unfold creativity, both in lyrics and melody. This means that the band members strive to create a unique sound to inspire their audience. Within the band, the pleasure in working together, being creative and making music always prevails. The combination of fun and serious work has led to the release of a first album with 14 songs, called 'Brink Express' (released 11th of October, 2013).

 

The music genre of Local Speed Delivery can be described as alternative pop-rock, with influences from various styles like (hard) rock, pop and funk and occasionally even a touch of psychedelic and symphonic rock. In this regard, the band is inspired by artists like Snow Patrol, The Killers, Fleetwood Mac and The Strokes.

 

During the performances of Local Speed Delivery, enthusiasm, musicality and entertaining the audience are very important. A thing that stands out as well is the very good voice of the lead singer (like the Dutch rock artist Anouk). Together with the melodious background vocals of the two guitarists and the drummer, this is one of the characteristics of the band. Besides the well-thought-out and catchy lyrics – almost all band members have written several songs – the original chords and striking rhythms of the guitarists are notable.

 

Local Speed Delivery is available for great café performances, good parties and hot festivals.
