WATCH | New Wave Quebec Artist Les Louanges Gives Us Chill-Binding Music And Visuals

On Our Radar

Hailing from Lévis, Les Louanges (whose real name is Vincent Roberge) is a multi-instrumentalist and multi-talented individual who is embarking on a new path by exploring more chillwave, R&B and hip-hop sounds.

A couple days before the release of his debut album, Les Louanges splinters himself into different parts in his new music video for "DMs". Flirting with humor and illusion, the video leaps into the artist’s imagination and reveals one of his biggest fantasies: being able to call on a substitute to replace himself in certain situations.

DMs is a long letter from someone I will never answer back, the artist explains. You can run after me if you want, but I won’t be there.

His album La nuit est une panthère is a good mix of eclectic songs. It’s pop, it’s jazzy, with a perfectly balanced amount of R&B, hip-hop and chillwave. Les Louanges sings in French and belongs to that new generation of Quebec artists whose main artistic approach is to deconstruct musical genres and styles. He leads the audience through a variety of different tones while staying true to his roots in his lyrics.

I had to relearn how to write, he admits. I found my own flow, then proceeded to adapt my lyrics to my music.
