This duo started as children in high school…
From there “Louis The Child” was born
Robert Hauldren and Frederic Kennett make up the artistic duo. Each of them is actually younger than each of us at Where’s The Vibe. Where they are 22 and 21, we are 24 and 22. The two were both music students at the same high school but didn’t meet until a Madeon concert.
Louis The Child started playing at small venues between the years 2013 and 2015. Then it all started when they got strange with their release of “It’s Strange” this was their first big hit in 2015. At that time Frederic was 17 years old and still in high school. There were a few things that made this song pop up on the charts. A few of those things included: Taylor Swift added the song to her “Songs that Will Make Life Awesome” and was a featured song on Fifa 16 soundtrack. When “It’s Strange” was featured on Fifa 16 that was when I first heard that song and I could not stop listening. To wrap up the strange year they started their own tour on October 17 in Chicago.
Then in 2016, they started performing at major concerts such as Coachella, Electric Forest, Electric Zoo, Lollapalooza, Ultra, and Moonrise. Later that year Louis The Child created a band with Pelican Child. Soon after the formation of the band, they released a single “Turn Me Down”. This was in preparation for the release of the EP “Love Is Alive”.
In 2017 they released “Love Is Alive EP” in March and then they went on a march to headline 32 shows. The first song off of this EP “Go” was featured in an IPad commercial. With the Upbeat vibes of Louis The Child this set them up for the IPad commercial and the Fifa 16 soundtrack, both of those use vocal songs with upbeat vibes.
Earlier this year they released a new single “Better Not” that just blew up instantly. This song featured an Australian singer Wafia and as of this month, the track has streamed over 70 million times on Spotify. Where’s The Vibe Duo attended Shaky Beats earlier this year and saw Louis The Child close out their set with “Better Not,” that changed my life for the next 4 weeks after that I listened to it every day.
Louis The Child had the whole crowd singing all of their songs at Shaky Beats and had me loving their whole set. They are one of my favorite pop EDM artists and still will be after this amazing EP they just released Kids At Play. These kids are really at play and I can’t wait to see where they go as they grow to Louis The Adult.
