Right off the bat, Jai Wolf‘s latest invokes strong feelings of being in the open air under the stars at Red Rocks, and if that doesn’t excite fans to see the Cure To Loneliness producer there later this summer, maybe nothing will.

Jai Wolf’s latest delivery, “Moon Rider” is an anthemic stadium pop track featuring a wide open synth, vocal chops on the drop, and tom hits that sit in the background to give the song an even bigger feel. Wrabel‘s affectionate singing (reminiscent of Sam Smith) adds the final layer to make “Moon Rider” an ideal show-stopper, just in time for Jai Wolf’s newly announced upcoming tour.

The Cure To Loneliness tour, named after his 2019 LP, starts at Coachella (as all good things do). The first iteration of the tour last spring hit 33 towns. On the second leg, only eight shows make the list, most notably a late-May show at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater.

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.
