Locnville's new album 'Taste The Weekend - HOT!
This is quickly followed by ‘Better’ the twins musical nod to the progressive hip-hop of Rae Sremmurd & Chance The Rapper, which gives us a glimpse of the brothers’ growth beyond the suburbs of their youth. Second single ‘Cold Shoulder’ co-produced with SA’s Sketchy Bongo bounces its way into your head and goes round and round for days, as a great pop single should. The title track, which underneath guest vocliast Roxy’s sultry refrain, hides a dark edge evoking the feelings of a Sunday morning come to soon. The sun comes out for ‘Just Like Me’, which bubbles and scrapes before revealing itself as the self-effacing cousin of ‘Cold Shoulder’. There’s no time for sleep or chilling, as we go back to the club with ‘All For You’, ‘Santa Monica Drive’ and ’25’. The phased vocals and electro-dub of ‘Golden Trinkets’ closes the loop. Hit repeat. Through musical and social experimentation, this multi-platinum selling, award-winning electronic pop duo have expanded upon their musical legacy as they stare introspectively into their future.
