Since making their breakthrough with the 2015 hit “It’s Strange” ft. K.Flay, Louis the Child have constantly shifted genres, exploring everything from hip-hop to psychedelia with equal parts passion and precision. One of the most relentlessly inventive acts in the electronic-pop world today, the Chicago-bred duo (21-year-old Robby Hauldren and 20-year-old Freddy Kennett) aspires to only continue expanding their sound as their worldwide following grows. “Our vision is always changing,” says Hauldren. “We’re always getting inspired by different things, or making some move in a new direction that we hadn’t considered before. The only consistent thing is the art in making the songs, and creating music because we just genuinely love and enjoy it.” In finishing up their full-length debut, Louis the Child are intent on instilling that sense of spontaneity into each new track they create. “We’re trying to make music where every single thing we release surprises people and is new and fresh in its own way,” says Kennett. “Whenever we’re able to capture that feeling of surprise, that’s when I feel really strongly about a song.” And as Hauldren points out, that approach amply fulfills Louis the Child’s two main missions as artists and musicians. “We just want to make music that makes people feel good, and have a good time doing it,” he says.
