Chicago duo Louis The Child have just dropped their six-track Love Is Alive EP on Ultra Music and it sounds great. The rising electronic act has been one of our favorites to watch over the past couple years, having premiered their breakout single "It's Strange" feat. K. Flay back in 2015 and seeing them consistently deliver quality releases like "Fire", "Love Is Alive" and "Phone Died", all three of which can be found on their new EP.
The project's lead track is "Go" which goes down an indie pop road and actually features the vocals of Louis The Child's very own Freddy Kennett. The song carries a simple and light beat that's easy to chill to and Freddy's soft vocals blend nicely with the instrumentation. One of the most interesting productions on the EP is "Slow Down Love" feat. Chelsea Cutler as it features these dark, lush soundscapes but then switches to a distinct steel drum sequence.
"World On Fire" is another new track to come from Love Is Alive. Ashe's silky vocals have such a romantic, classy, movie-like feel to them that make the song incredibly soothing to listen to. Once again, the production is rather simple, but every creative choice has a specific purpose and gives the song a sense of fullness. Overall, this is a great EP and something that will not only please current Louis The Child fans, but bring in new listeners.
The duo puts a variety of genres, moods and energies on display with their new body of work. We had the pleasure of speaking with Freddy and Robby of Louis The Child about the EP too. You can check out the interview and stream the six-track Love Is Alive EP below. Also be sure to check out their upcoming festival dates to hear some of these tunes live. Enjoy!
Europe was so much fun. Porter and Madeon attracted a really welcoming and fun crowd. It was really interesting to see what songs people react to out there verses the states. We drop 1901 by Phoenix all the time and it goes crazy in the states but we dropped it in London and not as many people knew the words or the song. Even though we were an opening act, lots of people knew our music and every show had great energy. We also had time to explore and do some sightseeing too. Getting to go to the Pompidou in Paris was definitely a highlight of the trip.
Looking forward to releasing lots of music in 2017 and playing more festivals this summer
