It’s been a while since local duo Locnville have released new music. However, Andrew and Brian Chaplin have been spending a lot of time in the studio creating new music and heading into a new sonic direction and today, the group has finally given fans a brand-new single. Locnville dropped ‘Baloo’ on all major digital music platforms today – and it’s another hot single from the group.
As expected, ‘Baloo’ is inspired by the group’s love for The Jungle Book and features a saxophone hook which brings the song together beautifully.
“‘Baloo’, for me, is some of the most fun I’ve had while making a song,” Brian tells us. “The whole track came together so naturally, because we weren’t thinking too much about it, we just let the song write itself.” Andrew adds that “When we were making the beat for this track, we just saved the session file as Baloo because the horn part reminded us of bears scratching their backs on trees and all that. Once I had that in my head I just couldn’t get it out and the name just stuck. Obviously since Baloo is a bear, the whole roll out just went from there.”
Andrew continues saying “To me, it was such a great place to start – it made sense for the artwork and the music video as well as the whole release strategy. The track has a very nostalgic feel to me and speaks a lot about growing up and having your priorities and perspectives challenged.’ Brian adds that ‘lyrically the song is quite reminiscent and reflective and highlights that sometimes things don’t always pan out as we’d originally thought, and we may not feel the same way about certain things, but that is part of the journey and I believe we’ve really put that across nicely in the track. We really had fun making this and I think everyone is going to have a lot of fun listening to it.”
Locnville aren’t stopping with this release. The duo has also confirmed that they will be releasing another new track titled ‘Lemon Moon’ on November 2nd with videos for each track going live on the 26th October and 9th November respectively.
