Electronic pop, production duo Louis The Child haven’t really made their mark over hear in the UK yet. Back home in the US though, they’ve toured with The Chainsmokers and even opened for Madeon. Earning the respect of two of the most successful EDM acts around, really does go some way to indicate how Chicago duo Louis The Child are rising up in the ranks.
If you’ve heard Louis The Child anywhere it’ll probably be for their collaboration with Icona Pop on “Weekend”, but you know they kinda keep it tight with up-and-coming acts like themselves and bring them on board to co-assist with vocals and such. One of Louis The Child’s most striking singles to our minds is the team-up with the enigmatic, rising electronic pop artist Elohim on breezy anthem “Love Is Alive”, which is cooked to dreamy EDM, pop crossover bliss. Louis The Child like to push the envelop and they masterfully make this happen.
From the Chicago music scene to the back drop of Hyde Park and the British Summer Time Festival, we caught up with the duo backstage for an interview to get all the goss on how the Chicago music scene shapes their soundscape and how some tracks just land better in the US vs Europe.
