LOCAL SOUND STYLE is a Japanese EMO/Rock/Power-Pop band. Local Sound Style consists of Masahiro Araseki(Vo&Gt), Yusuke Goto(Gt), Takayuki Kurotaki(Ba) and Kosuke Saito(Dr), who all grew up in the same place, Hirosaki, Aomori, and was formed in 2oo4 when, by chance, all the members met in Tokyo after their high school graduation.

Their main musical influences are EMO bands like GET UP KIDS and JIMMY EAT WORLD, and Power-Pop bands like FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE and HOLIDAY WITH MAGGIE. Although this had become their musical foundation, they also absorbed the musical essence from Britpop like Oasis and Blur. Now they’ve got their own music filled with powerful, refreshing, and makes-you-feel-good sounds, which no one else but only LOCAL SOUND STYLE can play.

LOCAL SOUND STYLE released their very first self-titled EP “before daylight” in September, 2005. It was limited to be sold at the place they played or on the STM online website, but was very well received and reached 1 in the STM online JP chart. In March 2006, the same EP released in the US. This US version EP was reimported to Japan and won 1 hit of the year in the sales chart on the Indie-only website, 「」. LOCAL SOUND STYLE started getting people’s attention.

In April, 2007, LOCAL SOUND STYLE, who played with many top artists such as DAPHNE LOVES DERBY, DREAM STATE, HOLIDAY WITH MAGGIE, and WAKING ASHLNAD, finally released their first long-awaited full album “Doing It For The Kids” produced by Ed Rose, who previously produced big names such as THE GET UP KIDS and MOTION CITY SOUND TRACK.
