The looks, the sound, and the voice. It’s rare for a group to have the entire package, but when it happens, it’s gold. Meet Krewella.
The three piece from Chicago are a match made in audio heaven. The man behind the beats, Kris Trindl (otherwise known as Rain Main), pumps out high-throttle bangers, drawing from dubstep, moombahton, and house. Sisters Yasmine and Jahan Yousaf add to the mix with spicy vocals and lyrics that get things hyped.
Founded in 2007, Krewella didn’t truly start to grab ears until late in 2012, when their single “Killin’ It,” rocketed the group onto the national stage. Debuting at #1 on Beatport, the success of their first EP, Play Hard, landed them a contract with Columbia Records.
All that time simmering in Chi-town’s West Loop neighborhood was well spent. Mashing pop with the underground, Krewella is a charismatic act that can’t be overlooked. Their music blasts with confidence and quality.
It’s easy to see that Krewella is just getting started. The five tracks on Play Hard each hold a different style, but flow with a polished approach that rocks between aggressive and playful. These three friends know they’re rockstars, and they’re doing a great job of letting everyone else know.
