Louis the Child get constructively creative on ‘Better Not’
Louis the Child has long toed future bass territory as a site of creativity and exploration in their songs. The duo’s latest single, “Better Not,” materializes as an extension of the mastery of production techniques that the group has exemplified on prior tracks, while notably delving deeper into soul touching terrain.
“Better Not” centralizes the vocals of Wafia, admitting optimistically up tempo steel drum and xylophone accents that complement the tonal purity of Wafia’s contribution, while signaling the slightest shift in Louis the Child’s genre inclination. The single seems a thoughtful experimentation with future bass influenced sonics that remain malleable, and one not so easily defined.
The track harnesses an effervescent, happy-go-lucky spirit that is noticeably fresh in sound.
