Watch out when taking a visit down reminiscence lane, as a result of as EDM duo Krewella seize on their new membership banger, it’s ‘really easy to get caught up to now.’
“Is it simply me, or do you ever really feel like time simply flies?” asks Krewella at first of “Rewind,” their new track with fellow DJ duo Yellow Claw. On this observe, Krewella – aka sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf – get caught reminiscing about years and loves handed (“I’ve by no means been good at saying goodbye / so I’ mma let the reminiscences get me by). The manufacturing of “Rewind” strengthens this retrospective perspective. It’s as if listeners are experiencing a soundtrack to Krewella’s reminiscences. Whereas there’s a little bit twinge of unhappiness over what was misplaced on the previous, the track – by means of its manufacturing and vocals – conveys a little bit of optimism for what’s subsequent sooner or later.
“We wrote ‘Rewind’ concerning the bittersweet feeling of dropping your self in reminiscences,” Krewella tells HollywoodLife. “How moments and feelings appear to fade within the blink of an eye fixed, and out of the blue it’s a month, a 12 months, typically a decade later, and you’re feeling like all the things you’ve skilled is a fictional story. The ‘you’ from the previous is a well-known stranger. You’re unhappy that it’s all gone, however completely satisfied that it led you to the place you might be proper now. They are saying nostalgia is sort of a drug, doubtless as a result of it’s really easy to get caught up to now, however this track is about letting your self slip into it knowingly and revel in it with reckless abandon.”
This track is exceptionally poignant, contemplating Krewella’s historical past. At first of the 12 months, the sisters returned with zer0, their first album in seven years. Their dubstep-oriented debut, Get Moist, debuted at no. eight on the Billboard 200 in 2013, and had profitable appearances at just about each main dance music competition. Their profession was derailed in 2014 after they parted methods with a former bandmember (who then sued the sisters.) Six years after that, the sisters launched their long-awaited follow-up.
“When zer0 got here out, our dad texted us this inspiring message saying how each single second is a chance to begin once more at zero,” Jahan informed Spotify. “I feel that’s such a very good reminder. The phrase “zero o’clock” retains coming into my head—the concept this second is all we now have, and every time we’re holding onto the bags of the previous or anxious concerning the future, it’s as a result of we’re not dwelling in that sacred area of zero.”
“It’s scary to launch a physique of labor you’ve been growing for therefore lengthy,” added Yasmine. “However ultimately you want to let go, and I’m so excited and refreshed by the truth that folks can hear who we’ve developed into, and the place we’re going subsequent as a result of all the things is a stepping-stone. I like that persons are attending to know us higher, little by little.”
