Loud Luxury, the Canadian-born hitmaking dance music duo of Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace now based in Los Angeles, continues to build an international audience after taking the Canadian scene by storm. In addition to multiple Juno Award wins, Loud Luxury has a Canadian diamond single via the track "Body," an international smash that accumulated nearly 2 billion streams across all platforms.

The new cut "Young & Foolish" (Armada Music/Sony) features fast-rising U.S. pop act charlieonnafriday, and looks poised to be another dance-pop winner. charlieonnafriday's vocals mesh neatly with LL's signature catchy beats on an ode to dance floor hedonism. Sample lyrics: "Spilling drinks on my shoes, face down and I'm covered in bruises, but I'd do it all again cuz I'm young and I'm foolish."

In a label press release, Loud Luxury explains that “charlieonnafriday is an artist we’ve been following for the last year, and we’ve played so many of the same colleges together that it was only a matter of time before we teamed up. From the first time we were in the studio together, we were adamant about this track being fun, but brutally honest. We wanted to describe the highs – and lows – of growing up.”

Loud Luxury premiered the track live at the Electric Daisy Carnival fest in Florida last month, to a positive response.

Loud Luxury plays Rebel in Toronto on Dec. 22 and the Toboggan Festival in Quebec City on Dec. 28. The duo then appears on the Hollywood segment of the 2024 Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest show, sharing the stage with such stars as Green Day, Janelle Monae, Ludacris, Aqua, Bebe Rexha, Ellie Goulding and Nile Rodgers & Chic. 2024 shows include the Lollapalooza festival in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil in March. Loud Luxury also currently holds a Las Vegas residency with TAO Group at OMNIA, Hakkasan and Wet Republic.

Arcade Fire ‘Funeral’

Loss, love, forced coming-of-age, and fragile generational hope: Arcade Fire’s debut touched on all these themes as it defined the independent rock of the ‘00s. Built on family ties (leader Win Butler, his wife, Régine Chassagne, his brother Will), the Montreal band made symphonic rock that truly rocked, simultaneously outsize and deeply personal, like the best pop. But for all its sad realism, Butler’s is music that still finds solace, and purpose, in communal celebration.
