    Locksley is an indie four-piece pop rock/power pop band from Madison, Wisconsin. They are self-released on their own Feature Records label. Their songwriting is heavily influenced by early British Invasion bands with an instrumental style based more on early American punk bands and modern garage rock groups. The band describe their sound as doo-wop punk.
    • Don't Make Me Wait (2007/2008, rerelease)
    • Be In Love (2010)
    • Locksley (2011)
    • Forward (2018)

    I first saw this band opening for Butch Walker on the tour for I Liked it Better When You Had No Heart, and fell in love with their semi throwback Strokes-esque sound. You may have hear their track 'The Whip' in practically every movie trailer or commercial released in 2010.

    After their first two albums the band went on hiatus before returning for a number of singles and a new album titled Forward (2018) which was quietly released, but pushed their sound in many interesting new directions.
