A lot of great things come out of Chicago like Michael Jordan and the Bulls’ six championship run and hot Italian beef sandwiches. Louis The Child is a future-pop duo with a cult following that also calls the midwest home. While they’ve been touring the festival scene and enticing crowds they just released their debut album, Here For Now.
It’s safe to say the wait has been worth it. This 14 track album represents the exact feelings one gets from watching a Louis The Child set — hope, gratitude, and joy, just to name a few things.
Many of the songs have already been released through singles, but the collective energy of the album brings much more to the table than a handful of singles ever could. The duo wanted this project to be about the “beauty and impermanence of our time on earth.” That’s a great way to describe the feeling one gets at one of their shows — with the uplifting bass music that sucks you into the present and doesn’t let you go.
@LouisTheChild new album made 2020 a little better! 🙏— Oskar (Little Foot 🦖) (@groovybutwhole) June 26, 2020
It’s almost impossible to hear songs like “Little Things” and not feel like a kid again. That effervescent feeling of hope that sends tingles up your spine. The album is chock-full of features from Foster The People, K. Flay, Vera Blue, DUCKWRTH, Quinn XCII, and Chelsea Cutler. Listeners are bound to find an uplifting track or seven to get them through the quarantine blues.
