Within the past year, Chicago superstars Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett a.k.a. Louis The Child entered the scene in a big way. Just six months ago, the duo released their single “It’s Strange” featuring K.Flay which even caught the attention of mainstream artists like Taylor Swift who claimed the song simply makes life more awesome. As of now, “It’s Strange” has inspired dozens of remixes from fellow artists and accumulated close to 7 million plays on SoundCloud.
Since the initial release of “It’s Strange” Louis The Child began their first headlining tour. So far, they’ve played at major cities and festivals such as Chicago, New York City, New Orleans for Buku, and Austin where they spent five days at SXSW just last week. Louis The Child will also close out their tour with a debut performance at Coachella come mid-April. For being fairly new artists in the scene, I think we can all agree that’s pretty substantial.While their preferred genre can be hard to define I like to think of their sound as a combination between artists like Flume, Illenium, and Odesza. If you’ve begun to love Louis The Child as much as we have, you’ll definitely want to check out the playlist below of some of our personal favorite LTC originals and remixes. Hopefully this holds you over until Louis The Child comes to Park Street Saloon in Columbus this Saturday. You can purchase tickets here.
