Louis the Child and Quinn XCII Drop ‘The City’

Electronic music boy geniuses Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett, who together create Louis the Child, have teamed up with singer Quinn XCII on their new bop “The City.” The single follows their last release, “Better Not,” which carries similar neon-colored artwork, and both are irresistibly catchy. While “Better Not” has a tropical, future bass beat, “The City” mixes it up with retro synths and Quinn XCII’s chiming voice.

Robby and Freddy’s success so early in their career, and in their lives, is inspiring and so is “The City.” It has one of those inexplicably uplifting beats that ignites excitement for the future. “So we keep holding on / You had me all along,” is a lyric that specifically instills a sense of motivation to keep moving forward, and “There’s no love in the city / Just lights looking pretty” suggests that maybe “the city” isn’t as great as it appears. However you take it, “The City” is a fresh, fun tune.
