This is a brand new song from London based Louis III.
‘Goosebumps’ is a catchy alt-pop number with and underlying R&B/Hip-Hop vibe. The instrumentation is made up of reverb laden clean electric guitar plucks and smooth synths with simple percussion. We loved Louis’ voice on this track too, it’s smooth and soft and carries a lot of emotion.
Louis says on his new single, “Goosebumps is about when you can’t get enough of someone, and what they do to you physically and mentally. The song was written quickly – in about 30 minutes – I think cause I knew exactly what I wanted to say, how I wanted the track to make me feel, and who the song was about.”
South Londoner Louis draws his influences from the culture clash of sounds he was exposed to growing up; everything from his parent’s record collection (Bob Marley, Leonard Cohen, and BB King to name a few) to credible beat driven pop he listens to (The XX, Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Major Lazer, and Drake) are areas he draws from to create his unique sound.
