Meet the WRBB x LMA Spring Show Lineup: Louis The Child

Bedroom Discotheque, a collaboration between WRBB and LMA, takes place on Wednesday, April 14, from 8-9 p.m. EDT! Take a minute to get familiar with Louis The Child, and we’ll see you at the show.

North Shore Chicago-based duo Louis The Child – composed of Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett – began making music together in high school. Now, at only 22 and 23 respectively, they have already created huge waves in the electronic and dance-pop scene. The duo has created banger after banger, releasing three EPs and 14 singles before finally releasing their debut album, Here For Now, last June. The album is full of incredible collaborations with legends like Duckwrth, Foster the People, Quinn XCII, Vera Blue, and many more. The duo even reunited with K. Flay, who helped LTC create one of their most famous songs, “It’s Strange,” in 2015.

Louis The Child create electronic music that feels incredibly grounded and organic. Their unique sound blends jazzy, experimental, and psychedelic sounds into their dance-pop tracks. In the studio, Hauldren and Kennett take turns working on instrumentation and production, switching whenever one gets tired, and making sure to see each idea to fruition when the groove is really flowing – even if that means they’re stuck behind the computer for hours. Their seamless dynamic shines through in the flow of their tracks and in their energy on stage, and the duo is known for incredible live performances. In past years, they’ve wowed packed crowds at Lollapalooza, Coachella, Red Rocks, Gov Ball, and on their own world tour. This year, they’ve been trying to stay engaged with fans by doing live streams, sharing unreleased music, and performing digital shows.

Above all else, Louis The Child hope their music adds positivity to the world and encourages their audience to appreciate every moment in life. Kennett says of their new album, “I just hope that anyone who is not feeling the magic of life feels it [a] little bit; looks out of their eyes and appreciates their eyes, something simple, appreciates their breath, appreciates the sound of music and feels a little bit of magic in their stomach.”

The Northeastern community is sure to feel this magic during Louis The Child’s headlining performance at the WRBB x LMA Spring Show, taking place on April 14 from 8-9 p.m. EDT (NU only). When it’s showtime, join at the link here!
