Anyone who had radio or Internet access in 2013 probably knows all the words to "Alive," the EDM-pop banger that introduced the world to Krewella. Since then, the duo—sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf—have been super busy becoming world famous and headlining festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival and Lollapalooza. It's taken them three years to finally release their next single, but it's finally here.
Today, NYLON is premiering "Broken Record," the second track off Krewella's upcomining Ammunition EP. The single adds a nostalgic, alt-rock layer to their signature bubblegum sound. Both sisters wrote and sang every song on the new EP with live guitar, so fans can expect a more personal and "angsty" vibe this time around. "We wanted something a bit more raw and real," said Yasmine. "We wanted feelings of aggression."
The Ammunition EP is due out on May 20 ahead of Krewella headlining their global Sweatbox tour. We caught up with Jahan and Yasmine to get more details about their live gigs and tap into their songwriting process.
