Krewella is an electronic pop music group made up of two girls and one dude from Chicago, Illinois that formed in 2007 and over the last year have really been making a name for themselves in the electronic music scene. The girls are really attractive, but don’t let that distract you from the actual music which is really good. I heard about them and watched their newest video Alive. After watching the video for Alive I thought that they were okay, but that track seemed a little too generic, like it was following a formula that sounded like a lot of electronic dance song from the last few years. I was going to leave it at that and not write about Krewella, but instead I decided to check out some of their other stuff from the last few months.
So I put on a video from last August titled, Feel Me, and I was surprised to hear a different sound. It was a unique blend of dubstep and pop that had a fresh feel to it and it changed my opinion. It might be a personal preference, but one of the things that I really like is when artists pull from different genres to create unique sounds. For me, Feel Me, does that and now I’m excited to hear more from them when their album comes out, scheduled for a summer 2013 release.
Maybe you’ve heard them and maybe you haven’t. Below I’ve posted the video for Feel Me and also for Alive. Let me know in the comments if you agree that Feel Me is the better track or if you like the sound of Alive and disagree with my opinion that it sounds too much like other songs and artists.
