Krewella Drops First Single in Over a Year with New Bass Duo [VIDEO]
Yesterday, Krewella surprised fans by dropping a teaser rap video, making Kanye's "I Love Kanye" their own in a fun cover during which they announced new music. And now, the sisters have released their first single in over a year.
"Beggars," a collaboration with up-and-coming Bristol bass duo DISKORD, was released today along with a video by Laine Kelly, who also directed the video for Krewella's 2013 single "Killin' It."
‘It’s about looking behind the veil and past the differences,’ Jahan writes, ‘while opening the door to envisioning the experiences of others…’ She closes by sparking "a dialogue of a very personal nature" about the mysterious image in their always-open forum with their fans.
The new pop punk, hardcore and dubstep-infused anthem sees the sisters go back to their roots and it's the first off an upcoming EP called Ammunition. Jahan and Yasmine shared the story behind "Beggars" in their post debuting the track earlier today.
From the Krewella Facebook page:
This song has been on a 3 year journey. It started in LA in 2013, we wrote more for it in Australia in 2014, we almost gave up on the song in 2015, but then somewhere along the way Beggars found itself in the UK in the hands of the remarkably talented duo, DISKORD. James & Ed, this song wouldn't have the pure and honest rage it has if it weren't for you two.
Krew, thank you for waiting over a year to hear new music. We can't even recall how many times we've said music is "coming soon", but we are so happy to say that soon is now HERE, and there is so much more to come. We hope this song brings you strength, power, and sweat in the times you need it most. Shouts to our buds, Laine Kelly & Brandon Parker, for helping us create the visual for Beggars, along with the rest of our amazing team and all of our LA krew who were extras & moshed with us!!! Peep it below!!
Y & J
