The phrase “at least” almost always anticipates the speaker’s, or in this case the singer’s, acknowledgement of a silver lining, and that’s precisely the focus of Louis The Child‘s latest single, “Free.”

The romantic cut casts a lyrical glance back in time to reflect on a love that couldn’t sustain its circumstances. It’s a melancholy meditation on a relationship that once was. The story is propelled by the love’s unrequited orator, vocalist, Drew Love. For all of its aching rumination, “Free” is buoyed by the optimistic admission of the hook: “At least you’re free.”

Louis The Child spoke on lending their electronic production to the emotional intent behind driving its narrative.

“We tried about 20 million different drops for this song because we knew we had to have the production match that emotion,” Louis The Child said.

Shimmering melodies add a tonal lightness to the track that extends through the energetic stutter of the rhythm at “Free’s” breakdowns. The single follows Louis The Child’s lauded remix of Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s “Midnight Hour.”

Chicago’s headlining dance music duo, Louis The Child, have remixed Skrillex and Boys Noize’s latest act of valor, “Midnight Hour,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. The remake ingests the Kids At Play EP producers’ playful cadence through juggling high-end synths and vocals while maintaining the house rhythm from the Dog Blood tandem’s original audio.

Other additions on the edit include a whispering saxophone ambiance underneath Dolla $ign’s lush singing to introduce the sultry rapper. On the second verse, the bed of cozy synths and dissident bells continue to lift the hip-hop artist’s voice.

Louis The Child’s previous project included singer, Wafia, from the duo’s most-streamed song on Spotify, recently marking her debut on Atlantic Records alongside Whethan, with “Hurts.”

Wafia recently marked her debut on Atlantic Records, enlisting Whethan and Louis The Child to aid in the release of “Hurts.”

The track is led by Wafia’s vocals, which tell the story of heartbreak and needing space. Her singing is accented by delicate production techniques that fall into a catchy house drop.

“It’s a homie track,” Whethan said of the track in a press release. “It was an opportunity to be able to come together with friends and make music. Both Wafia and Louis The Child are like family, so this one means a lot to me.”

This is not the first time Louis the Child has worked with Wafia. The duo previously released “Better Not,” and “Hurts” is a worthy continuation of the artists’ successful collaboration.

Since Louis The Child first captured the attention of the electronic scene with K.Flay featured single “It’s Strange,” the duo have continued to traverse new sound territory while perfecting their signature, effervescent production stylings. Now, the Chicago producers have joined forces with singer/songwriter, Wrabel, for the latest evolution of their beloved future-bass craft with new single, “Too Close.” Wrabel previously collaborated with Louis The Child to write “Better Not (featuring Wafia)” and has gathered credits on both pop and electronic peers, including Kesha, Galantis, Kygo, P!nk, Afrojack, and more.

Laden with bright brass tinges and punchy lines, “Too Close” balances soft ambiance with upbeat melodies, meticulously focusing on accentuating mid-to-high-range sonic elements. Playing with voice-pitching and layering vocal harmonies, Louis The Child inject rosy energy into a carefree, heart-racing track with their manipulation of bouncy synths, airy chimes, and pop-leaning structures. Careful isolations and diverse soundscapes carry and showcase Wrabel’s smooth vocals throughout. On “Too Close,” Louis The Child once again reaffirm their ability to deliver infectiously feel-good spirits.
