Louis The Child + Pell = Pellican Child
That moment when you discover new music is always special. It makes your hair stand up, gives you a little bit of that feel good smile, and instantly makes you happy.
As we were slowly scrolling through our Soundcloud today, this same thing happened to us. We stumbled upon a reposted track by up-and-coming electronic producer Bearson. The track, subsequently named “Turn Me Down” was posted from a brand new account named “Pellican Child”. It was the only track on the account. So automatically we didn’t expect much. Always the curious listener, we gave it a shot, and are we glad we did. Pellican Child as it turns out is the unique and awesome combination of Chicago producers Louis the Child, and New Orleans rapper Pell.
“Pellican” standing for Pell and the New Orleans/Louisiana native state bird and local NBA franchise The Pelicans.
And “Child” referencing the the Duo of Louis the “Child”.
“Turn Me Down” offers Louis the Child’s unique pop infused bass, mixed with Pell’s self described “Dream Rap”, that closely resembles B.o.B and current superstar Chance the Rapper. The song is an instant hit. This combination of styles is unlike anything we’ve heard from either of the two. The indie, electronic and hip-hop vibes are easily a sweet mix for the brand new group.
Both artists have had breakout years in 2016. Louis the Child is currently selling out city after city on their first national tour, and Pell has seen his music gain serious momentum, taking part in festivals such as Pemberton Music Festival and Hangout Music and Arts Festival.
We can only hope Pelican Child has more planned for the world in 2017, but for now “Turn me Down” is a track to watch out for. Give it a listen below! It won’t disappoint!
