Listen to Krewella’s new single ‘Team’
While the last few years have come with unfortunate controversy and soul searching for sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, better known as Krewella, in May the duo successfully demonstrated they had moved on with the release of their first EP in three years, entitled Ammunition. The genre-surfing six-song compilation, which incorporates influences from heavy metal to trap to pop, not only signified the return of Krewella, but showcased the continued sonic evolution of the sisters well passed the signature commercial bass sound that catapulted them to fame.
With their latest track, titled “Team”, Krewella continues to explore new territory. Starting off with soft vocals, buoyant rhythms, and an energetic percussion arrangement, “Team” is one of Krewella’s most commercial-friendly offerings yet. The song’s intensity picks up with an infectious hook that leads to an explosive drop filled with dancehall-inspired percussion loops and the eccentric synth work that have become EDM mainstays over the past year.
The music video for “Team” shows Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf partying carefree in LA with their friends. From the visual, it appears as if the Yousaf sisters have emerged from the past few trying years with newfound confidence about who they are both as artists and as individuals.
