We are very proud to have the chance to premiere “Carl Louis – Iris“, a transporting song that blends the boundaries between Dreampop, Chillout, Future Bass and Electronica. With exquisite piano arrangements, soothing and blissful vocal samples, the Norwegian producer created a mesmerizing and emotionally-rich opus. Consider this just a sample though, because his full album will be available on May 26th on all streaming services and online music stores.
In Carl’s own words: “«Iris» is a track about a fictional character named Iris which travels far from home but longs for what she left.“, this quote gives even more meaning to the song and gives a clear perspective of the journey that the song takes you on. No matter what kind of music you are into, I can’t imagine anyone not falling in love with the tender and enigmatic energy that Iris provides.
Stream Carl Louis – Iris below and get it this friday! Also don’t forget to add May 26th to your calendar for his album launch via Toothfairy.
More about Carl Louis:
Growing up on the Nordic coastline, producer Carl Louis has spent much of his career broadening his musical horizons with a number of notable credits to his name. Originally a member of electronic duo CLMD, Louis co-produced a number of notable releases including ‘Stockholm Syndrome’, which went multi-platinum in Norway and was also premiered on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show. Afterward, Louis left the group in 2014 to pursue his own personal ambitions.
Having spent the last few years producing singles for other artists, including ARY’s debut single ‘Higher’, as well as releasing his own mini-album in 2015, Louis has now returned to deliver his latest full-length ‘Memory Lane’.
While its title may suggest a more nostalgic sound, his latest material is a smorgasbord of contemporary influences and inspirations. With a largely classical direction, the mix of ideas and directions on his latest release are clear throughout.
Whether it is the ‘Random Access Memories’-era Daft Punk sound of ‘Human Being’ or the uplifting trip-hop style of ‘Easy’, ‘Memory Lane’ manages to gather together a whole range of sounds and is able to pull off a cohesive release.
