A longtime fixture of the Montreal arts scene, Lou Phelps is one of Canada's foremost purveyors of club-rap bangers.
Lou started making music in 2011 with his older brother, Kevin, aka the Polaris Prize-winning producer, KAYTRANADA, forming a future-rap group called The Celestics. Using the moniker, Louie P, Lou developed a reputation for creating tasteful and danceable electro rap
Sharing a psychedelic, humorous, and unsettling clip for a candy-coloured disco-funk single, Lou gets metaphysical with "Come Inside". In the video, Lou falls asleep while watching TV, dreaming that he hosts a late-night talk show. Initially a pleasantly odd experience, the vibe grows sinister when the characters on TV start interacting with Lou, staring daggers, dancing, and eventually growing violent.
Reminiscent of the old lady's experience in the movie Requiem for a Dream, this entire music video sits eerie, yet entertaining, to say the least. You'll also recognize a few familiar faces from the Montreal scene, including local artist Naadei, and Zach Macklovitch from Saintwoods.
Watch "Come Inside" above.
