Speedy Ortiz is an American indie rock band from Northampton, Massachusetts. The band originated in 2011 as Sadie Dupuis' solo project while she was teaching songwriting at a summer camp, recording her own material using her laptop. Two releases resulted from this solo endeavor, the Cop Kicker EP, and the LP The Death of Speedy Ortiz.

The project expanded into a full band in late 2011. The group independently released "Taylor Swift" b/w "Swim Fan," recorded by Paul Q Kolderie, which was followed by 2012's Sports EP, released on Exploding in Sound Records.

Their debut album, Major Arcana, was released on Carpark Records in 2013. The album was well received. Pitchfork Media deemed the album "Best New Music."

In 2014, guitarist Matt Robidoux was replaced by fellow Massachusetts musician Devin McKnight of Grass is Green. On January 21, 2015, Dupuis announced their second studio album, Foil Deer, to be released April 21, 2015.
