Johannesburg – With the release of their 3rd studio album, Locnville is back and better than ever! 

The twins have been working extremely hard to promote their Taste The Weekend album, released on 17 June, so to give them a little break we decided to meet them for a cup of coffee just to chat. 

Okay, we may have also forced them to tell us 7 awesome/fun facts about themselves that we didn’t know. 

That’s right, we don’t fear the unknown, we’re intrigued by it. So if you are too, here’s 7 things you might not have known about Locnville. 

1. Technically speaking.  

Not many people know that the Locnville guys actually write and produce their own music. In fact, their goal is to produce for other artists as well, including big names like Drake. “We write and produce all of our stuff. For the first time we got co-producers involved in this album,” Andrew said. 

Is it just us or does that make their work seem even more impressive? 

2. Yo, Diplo! Holler at your boys! 

The one producer the guys would like to work with most is American DJ, Diplo, who is responsible for hits like M.I.A’s Paper Planes and Justin Bieber's Where Are U Now. 

3. Drama kings. 

If they weren’t in music, the Locnville boys would be involved in film. While both of them would like to try their hand at producing/directing films, Brian adds that he would also probably be an actor. 

4. Man of steel. 

“Well one thing that a lot of people don’t know about me is that I’ve got a 9 inch titanium plate in my left leg,” Andrew revealed. 

5. Child star. 

Brian wasted no time getting his name out there as a kid. “I was the face of Nesquik for a few years, and a virtual-reality bowling game. And then I did an ad against under-aged drinking,” he said. 

Side note: Dear Brian, after searching endlessly on Google, as promised, we’re sad to announce that we have not found any of these videos/pics. The search continues… 

6. Squeaky clean. 

Andrew is a self professed neat freak. “I’m neurotically organised,” he said. 

7. Young hustlers. 

When the guys were only 8 years old, they made R800 while busking, and used the money to pay for a group of underprivileged kids to go to the Ratanga Junction theme park in Cape Town. How sweet!
