MTV-EMA winning twins, Andrew & Brian Chaplin, aka Locnville kick the new year and decade off with a head bumping single Tribes & Angels. The twins collaborated with Swazi born artist Muzi Mnisi who now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. The song features a solid bassline and crisp production. Borrowing elements typical to the hip hop genre while still maintaining the authenticity of the Locnville sound – the production, as well as the vocal contrasts between Muzi and the Chaplin twin brothers, makes for a beautiful sonic juxtaposition.
Andrew added the following about the EP, “Tribes & Angels is our first release in a while and a lead up to our next full-length LP to mark our first decade in the industry which is a huge milestone. It’s got a beautiful mix of flavours and a great story behind the title track Tribes & Angels. Pop this on for your next road trip, and I guarantee you’ll be spinning it more than once”.
