They're one of the most successful band to come out of South Africa in the last ten years.
Sibling duo Locnville - twins Andrew and Brian Chaplin - hit the music scene in 2010 with their debut, Sun In My Pocket and since then have established themselves as a musical force to be reckoned with, both in SA and overseas.
Their latest musical offering sees them teaming up with producer AirDee and Cape Town rapper YoungstaCPT.
CapeTalk's Sara-Jayne King caught up with Andrew Chaplin, one half of the duo, to get the low-down on Locnville.
I think the goal of any artist is to have the type of success where a large audience are listening to you, so I would say from that point of view we had sort of expected that [success] from a certain standpoint, but you never really know what's going to happen.— Andrew Chaplin, Locnville
2018 marks ten years since the duo burst on to the music scene, and five albums later they've secured themselves a dedicated fan base.
But just how does the sibling partnership work in the studio?
In the most recent years, we found ourselves in the situation where I'm more on the technical side, whereas Brian tends to be more on the melody and song writing side.— Andrew Chaplin, Locnville
Their current single Better With Silence (a collaboration with producer AirDee and local rap artist YoungstaCPT) is out now.
